The Safer Parking Scheme is an initiative of the Association of Chief Police Officers aimed at reducing crime and the fear of crime in parking facilities.
Safer parking status, Park Mark®, is awarded to parking facilities that have met the requirements of a risk assessment conducted by the Police. These requirements mean the parking operator has put in place measures that help to deter criminal activity and anti-social behaviour, thereby doing everything they can to prevent crime and reduce the fear of crime in their parking facility.
For customers, using a Park Mark® Safer Parking facility means that the area has been vetted by the Police and has measures in place to create a safe environment.
- Quality management
- Appropriate lighting
- Effective surveillance
- Clean environment
The scheme is managed by the British Parking Association (BPA) on behalf of Secured By Design. It is supported by the Home Office, Government and the Police Service of Northern Ireland.
