Rangers will fight High Street crime

Southend Standard: Dennis Baldry, Dawn Jeakings, and Mark Bartrip from Southend BID Dennis Baldry, Dawn Jeakings, and Mark Bartrip from Southend BID

A TEAM of street rangers will be unleashed in Southend's High Street to crack down on crime and antisocial behaviour.

The introduction of the team of three is one of the first initiatives of the Business Improvement District (BID), a traders-backed scheme which will bring a raft of improvements, financed by the shopkeepers themselves.


Traders voted on becoming a BID last November, and it will officially come into being on April 1, with businesses paying an extra 1.5 per cent on their rates to raise £2.7m over the next five years to be spent on the town.


The first wave of improvements will see three rangers in blue coloured uniforms patrolling the High Street from May, and they are likely to have the same powers as security guards in the Royals shopping centre as well as performing meet and greet duties for tourists.


Dawn Jeakings, who will chair a board of four members at the BID, said: “They will be the fountain of all knowledge of Southend but we also hope they will help crack down on crime by having good links with the police to report incidents.

This is a bad idea.
We tolerate police on our streets because they are accountable to the people.
These privately paid guards have no such loyalty, being the employees of private businesses.

I understand WHY they are doing this, when jewel thieves launch cinder blocks through windows in BROAD DAYLIGHT, it makes people edgy.
Yes, I understand and I sympathise with the reasoning behind it.

But it will take more than three security guards to improve the area.
The biggest challenge is to purge Southend of the drunks who turn our City into a warzone every Friday and Saturday night. The mere presence of guards is not sufficient, until the law has some real teeth, nothing will change.

What a complete waste of money. I'm only glad it's not my Council Tax paying for this. If the businesses are willing to pay extra on rates, why not divert that money to the police authority and instead of these three power rangers, employ another fully sworn police officer.

To be frank, we need to give the police a certain amount of...leeway when dealing with troublemakers.

And if their method of dealing with said troublemakers stretches the bounds of legality, then so be it.

The guys on the street have no power, not when a bleeding heart judge refuses to sufficiently punish those brought before him or when lawyers prattle about the 'rights' of deviants and malcontents at the detriment of the common good.

We need to change this or risk our city becoming a dumping ground for the worst kind of scum and villainy in Essex.

I am a rather tall well built fellow but I would be reluctant to do what they are doing, good luck to them but I suspect that all they will get is a stream of abuse from some of the scumbags that frequent the high street. The problem needs to be addressed not through having a go at people commuting crime in the high street but rather the causes of the anti social behaviour in the first place, which I feel is much more to do with the 'human rights' of these people. They know they can get away with anything with no consequences or a slap on the wrist. Good luck to them though it's a positive but small step

OK. So what we have are three people who will be available as wandering information points. So far, so good.
However, as for the sweeping statement (something the Echo is very fond of making) that they "will be unleashed in Southend's High Street to crack down on crime and antisocial behaviour", all I want to do is laugh.
Security guards (whether from the Royals or anywhere else) have no additional powers over that of ANY other member of the public. This means that these "rangers" will be nothing more than... erm... "wandering information points". There is no way, whatsoever, they will even have the slightest influence on reducing crime or anti-social behaviour because they have no powers or additional means to do so. I, for one, would be very interested to know how it is believed they would "crack down on crime and anti-social behaviour".
If the businesses of Southend want to spend their money on such gimmickry then that is up to them. However, I would have thought there are better things to spend their business rates on.
