Brixton Security Research Project

We have commissioned a Brixton based community business, WeRise, to conduct a research project for us. We want to hear from you! This consultation will inform how we progress with security in Brixton. To get involved please email us before Wednesday.
Improving security is one of the main objectives of the Brixton BID when it was established. The BID applied funding from its levy to fund two additional Metropolitan police officers dedicated to working with Brixton businesses (Section 92) . This was seen as one of the flagship Brixton BIDs projects and lead the way to a 33% fall in town centre shoplifting.

The Metropolitan Police have recently increased the costs of Section 92 services to all BID’s. The specific service provided two Section 92 officers dedicated the Brixton BID rose by £42,000 – from the current cost of £70,000 for two officers to £56,000 for each officer, a total of £112,000 per year. The Board of the Brixton BID made a decision on continuing the Section 92 service in Brixton and decided that it was not feasible to continue at this cost.We want to consult with a representation of Brixton businesses, establishing their concerns and priorities for additional safety and security for businesses in Brixton. A Steering Committee has been established to oversee this exercise and to manage a report due to be taken back to the board over the next couple of months.
