Safe Town Partnership Launch New Scheme In Paddock Wood

Shops and pubs in Paddock Wood will soon be fighting crime thanks to a new scheme being launched next week.

The Tunbridge Wells Safe Town Partnership will link businesses to each other via a radio network which will also connect them to the Council’s CCTV Control Room and Kent Police officers. The radios allow members to speak with each other meaning offenders can be deterred at the door. Repeat offenders can be banned from entering members’ premises altogether.
