Safer District

Community safety

The Street Beat team consists of police officers that are directly employed on the streets within the Linen Quarter. The Street Beat team is key to developing local knowledge around community safety and crime in liaison with local stakeholders and works to successfully identify and resolve problems.

In addition, a Community Safety Forum has been set up to:

  • Provide a platform for local organisations to share insights and concerns in relation to crime and anti-social behaviour
  • Support the work of the PSNI, including a review of the bespoke LQ Street Beat team, funded by Linen Quarter BID.
  • Discuss problem solving solutions, including policing priorities for the area, staff training, and crime reduction initiatives.

The Forum meets quarterly and is open to all member organisation of the Linen Quarter BID.
