Many of our businesses have indicated that Safety and Security management is the service provided by Team London Bridge is the most valued by them.
We work to improve links between businesses and the Metropolitan Police, as well as the local authority, to reduce crime in the area, and to help make workers, visitors and residents feel safe - day and night.
Our Partnership with the Police
The Team London Bridge area has 350 plus businesses, well over 35,000 local employees, an estimated 20 million leisure visitors and 50 million people passing through London Bridge station every year.
This growing population and built environment requires strategic management and cooperation from all sectors of the community to ensure a safe and secure environment for us all to enjoy.
With our help, London Bridge has remained one of the safest areas in the capital. Crime has been falling for continuous years and our partners in Southwark Police continue to commit more resources to the area. The additional patrol hours and dedicated Police Officer that we provide through our contract with the Police offers peace of mind as well as an active deterrent.
Local public facing businesses can expect regular visits from the Police patrols that we fund with around 16 business liaison visits per week carried out.
Crime Statistics and Police Reports
Team London Bridge has a contract with the Police to provide additional patrol hours within the London Bridge Business Improvement District (BID). Part of this contract is to supply us with regular crime statistics and monthly reports from the local Police team. These refer to the London Bridge BID area only but include Guy's Hospital.

The Southwark Community Security Zone (CSZ)
The Southwark Community Security Zone (CSZ) covers the area of northern Southwark between Tower Bridge and Blackfriars Bridge and is recognised by the Police as having significant political, cultural, economic and iconic status. The aim of the CSZ is to provide a safer, secure and more resilient place in which to work, live, visit and do business by developing and promoting the concept of community security. These objectives are delivered though a Security and Resilience Forum.
The membership of the Forum includes appropriate representatives from organizations (both private and public) in the area, the Police, and Southwark Emergency Planning.
