Canterbury Street Marshals

Supporting safety in Canterbury

About the Scheme

The Street Marshals will be provided by Right Guard Security, and are all Security Industry Authority (SIA) accredited, and approved and vetted by Kent Police as prescribed by the Community Safety Accreditation Scheme (CSAS).

Kent Police have granted Street Marshals the devolved power of a constable in uniform under section 50 of the Police Reform Act 2002 to require a person whom he/she has reason to believe to have been acting, or to be acting, in an anti-social manner (within the meaning of section 1 of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998) to give his/her name and address.

The Street Marshals will be clearly identifiable in their red and yellow jackets or tabards, which will clearly state “STREET MARSHAL” on the back of the jacket or tabard, and will display the CSAS logo, the “Expect Respect” logo for the scheme, and a CSAS ID card to display their devolved power status from Kent Police.

The Street Marshals will be there to support those transiting through designated areas, and have been selected for their professionalism, communication skills and approachability.

If you have any concerns whilst transiting though a designated area, please approach the Street Marshals who will be pleased to assist both students and local residents.
