Plymouth is committed to improve disabled access across the city and aim to be a dementia friendly city with many of the retailers and services gaining accrediations.
PLYMOUTH city centre is to be patrolled by private security guards during shopping hours under a scheme aimed at stopping crime and anti-social behaviour.
Dubbed the Parc Rangers, the “officers” will deal with criminals and troublemakers – such as shoplifters, drug dealers and street drinkers – and assist the police.
But they also have other functions, including being a friendly face for shoppers and visitors, offering advice, helping with lost children and even providing first aid.
Clean Team and 'Handyman' service
A rapid response, high visiblity Clean Team with 12 dedicated operatives (6 FTE) will be on duty seven days per week with new uniforms to improve visibility.
Our BID team will also respond to other maintenance issues such as painting and repairs, working with other partners such as the Community Service.
