Offering a safer and more welcoming city centre is an important part of the Peterborough Positive business plan. As such, we have introduced our very own Business Improvement District (BID) police officer to provide a dedicated and regular police presence in the city centre.


Jay works with the local neighbourhood policing teams and partner agencies to look at the design and implementation of problem-solving to reduce overall crime and anti-social behaviour (ASB) in the city centre, as well as representing the force within schemes such as Pub and Shop Watch.

In addition, Jay is meeting and building relationships with the businesses in the BID area to provide advice and support around crime prevention, along with using the DISC crime-reporting system for a joined-up approach to reducing crime.

If you spot Jay out and about in Peterborough city centre, be sure to stop by and say hi!
