Partnerships with Local Agencies
The York BID actively participates in initiatives that promote safety in York, and along with several local agencies and partners, sits on a wider strategic group focused on developing and delivering joined up citywide programmes. Working with the York's police force, community organisations and NEO's, the BID is involved with projects such as Operation Erase, Operation Target and OpWarmth, each with an aim to tackle local issues around drink-fuelled anti-social behaviour, vulnerable people in the community and providing support for the homeless. The Rangers also sit on nighttime economy task group which aims to position York as a safe evening environment for all who visit and live.
These projects are the latest examples of joined up efforts coordinated by local parties that result in a safer and more secure York.
