Community Safety Campaigns

Neighbourhood Link

Have you heard of 'Neighbourhood link'?  This is a community messaging system for Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.  The aim of the system is to keep residents informed and up to date with news on appeals, events, crime prevention advice as well as information on local policing matters.  Have a look a their website to find out more.

Ask for Angela

A campaign enabling people who might feel uneasy on a date in pubs and clubs to discreetly approach staff and request assistance.

Available at participating venues throughout Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland the ‘Ask for Angela’ initiative aims to provide customers with a way to remove themselves from an uncomfortable situation while on a date.

By “asking for Angela”, an individual is alerting staff that they require help. They will be taken aside, or to a safer location, so they can speak in confidence to that staff member about what assistance they need.

Options available to staff include: offering to call a taxi for the individual; providing a safe place for them to contact their friends or family; or requesting that the individual causing the distress leaves the venue.

More information and details on venues taking part in the scheme can be found on www.leicestershire.gov.uk/AskforAngela
