Canterbury Street Marshals

Supporting safety in Canterbury

Canterbury Street Marshal Scheme

Welcome to the Canterbury Street Marshal scheme website.

The scheme is a partnership between the University of Kent, Canterbury Christ Church University, Kent Union, Christ Church Students’ Union, Kent Police, Canterbury City Council, the Residents’ Associations of north and south Canterbury and Right Guard Security.

The scheme began on 19th September 2015 and is now in its fourth year of operation.

The scheme operates in defined residential areas with the dual aims of safeguarding students and local residents as they transit through designated areas of Canterbury at night, and promoting positive community relationships by encouraging students and local residents to behave responsibly whilst walking through these areas. The Street Marshal scheme is funded by the University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church University.
