The Manor Royal BID provides a range of services to help protect Manor Royal businesses and reduce crime. None of these services are a replacement for measures individual businesses ought to take to protect themselves and their staff.
Businesses ought to see these services provided by the Manor Royal BID as an enhancement to their own security arrangements, in addition to those provided by the police, to make Manor Royal as safe as possible and a “harder target” for criminal and anti-social behaviour. Success in reducing crime depends on everyone playing their part.
The following organisations work together for a safer Manor Royal:
Sussex Police - Crawley & Gatwick Business Watch - Blue Light Security - Manor Royal BID
