The British Jewellery Association has been in recent discussions with the Jewellery Quarter police to provide a visible street presence in the run up to Christmas, particularly in light of recent incidents.
They are now happy to report that as from September 27th (and for a period of three months) two officers have been assigned to patrol the Jewellery Quarter with the support of two community officers. Additionally, there will be a traffic unit presence (either cars or motor cycles) on a weekly basis.
We are currently in communication with Steelhouse Lane to determine what measures are being considered when the three month period expires.
The BJA takes the issue of security very seriously and will endeavour to work with its membership to provide whatever help and advice it can to ensure personal safety and the minimization of crime.
