• The scheme has the backing and support from the major agencies, authorities and organisations.
  • Paddock Wood businesses have this unique opportunity to take advantage of this grant funded scheme at such a very low cost.
  • For the scheme to work and be a success it will require a commitment. Already it has at least 10 very interested businesses.
  • Although businesses may believe this is not for them as business crime and anti social behaviour in Paddock Wood is very low, they may wish to consider the following :
    – What could it be without this system ?
    – The radio scheme is a very good way of making businesses and their staff
    feel safer and more secure, a direct line contact with the Police and
    business colleagues.
    – It’s not just there for reporting shop theft ! The radio is a good way of
    gathering intelligence and sharing with one another and with the Police.
    – It’s a scheme suitable for all types of businesses and organisations, from
    shops, banks, pubs & clubs, service stations to schools and leisure clubs.
    24 hours a day, 7 days a week – day and night coverage.
    – Evidence is suggesting that as other towns within the Paddock Wood
    catchment area become more active by introducing this type of system
    they will move the problems to outer areas.
    – Paddock Wood has a good reputation as a safe and secure place to live, shop
    and socialise. We surely would like to keep it that way ?
    – Compliancy is not an option. Being pro-active is !
    – The handsets are expected to have a range of 3-4 miles.
    – PWBA would urge businesses to become interested and make a commitment
    to the scheme. If after 12 months they have a view to opt out then so be it,
    but we think they will find those that did not sign up initially will be wishing
    they did.
