Parallel has been awarded the trial project to deliver Safer Street Marshalls to work alongside North Wales Police
The project was funded by Wrexham Council and is mainly targeting SWaN (Saftey of Women at Night), although our officers are trained to support the Police for most eventualities. The project to date has been an amazing success. Our officers have helped to save numerous lives, helped reduce crime and assist in keeping the peace in Wrexham Town Centre, reduce drinking and broken glass on the streets as well as providing survival blankets, slippers and medical support to dozens of vulnerable people.
A team of 4 specifically trained officers consisted of 2 female and 2 males. All officers came from a variety of backgrounds including Door Supervision, Care and Events. Additional training was delivered prior to contract starting with ongoing training from North Wales Police.
Intelligence and Reporting was key to the success of this project as Wrexham Council needed as much data as possible to demonstrate the need for ongoing Street Marshalls in Wrexham Town Centre
