Welwyn Garden City Watch 

Providing a safer Town Centre to employees and visitors. 

Shoplifters beware, Welwyn Garden City retailers are using a new radio system to spread the word about you.

Welwyn Garden City Business Improvement District (BID) have launched  Welwyn Garden City (WGC) Watch in partnership with Shop Safe to provide instant communication between shops, centre management, CCTV control rooms and the police.

Retailers will be able to quickly share information about shoplifters or anyone causing antisocial behaviour.

With over 40 businesses participating in this great initiative it has provided a safer environment for Town Centre employees and our visitors. 

WGC Watch objectives:

  • To tackle and prevent retail crime and anti-social behaviour through effective communication and the prompt reporting of retail crime, anti-social behaviour and criminal activity.

  • To promote a sense of security for customers and staff.

  • To improve police/business liaison by providing effective communications through two-way radio and dedicated online services. 

The Welwyn Garden City BID brings together all the businesses of Welwyn Garden City town centre to make the town a better place to live, work and enjoy.
