York BID Street Rangers

The York BID Street Rangers are the eyes and ears of the street in the city centre. They work with city partners, and take a friendly approach to deter anti-social behaviour or disorderly conduct and act as a reassuring presence to curtail potential crime. Rangers also serve as a welcoming presence, available to give information and assistance to residents and visitors to the city. The Street Rangers also log locations requiring improvements and work with relevant bodies to address any detected issues.

All street rangers are professionally trained staff who have experience of working in similar capacities within the city centre. Rangers are easy to spot in their highly visible uniforms and are positioned throughout the BID area. They operate 9am to 5pm, Monday to Thursday, 12pm to 10pm, Friday and Saturday, and 11am to 5pm on Sunday. 

This programme supports the BID’s initiative to boost safety and security in York city centre and is part of the BID’s overall commitment to enhancing the city’s inviting atmosphere for all who visit, work, study and live in York.
