Essex, Hertfordshire, London.
This contract is to provide a specialist Park Security Patrol Service (to be shared equally) between the Lee Valley Regional Park Authority and Broxbourne Borough Council. Both customers are looking for a service provider that can deliver in the following areas:
— Education through developed education programs, i.e. dog behaviour/training, etc.;
— Distraction activities, i.e. youth programs, etc.;
— Engagement with the community and users of the sites and facilities;
— Provide emergency back up and response 24/7;
— To have experience of patrolling in open spaces/parkland, buildings and estates;
— Be a visible deterrent, recognisable and approachable.
As stated this service will be in the Lee Valley Park (both North and South of the M25 orbital motorway), within the Borough of Broxbourne and the Counties of Essex and Hertfordshire, as such we would prefer (as a weighted consideration) the successful provider to be pro-actively engaged, accredited and/or affiliated with the incumbent Police Authorities or a Police Authority outside the stated boundaries. The Customers are keen that this service is not wholly seen as enforcement but rather a service that encourages and persuades people to use the areas with consideration and respect. However we will require the service provider to be able to enforce and ensure compliance if the situation is warranted, working very closely with the relevant emergency services, utilising enforcement by-laws if necessary.
24 months subject to agreement between all parties.
