Security Patrols

The Bilston BID, working with Wolverhampton Business Crime Reduction Group, has managed to secure a three-month trial with Cougar.

The security company will have patrols out every night to help reduce the number of crimes committed when many businesses are closed.

Business owners are being surveyed to help assess the current picture in terms of how they have been affected by crime and this will be repeated in the New Year to measure the success of the trial.

If successful, this could then become a more permanent arrangement.
