Leeds: Doormen join officers on street to help cut violence

Pub and club doormen acting as paid street marshals will be out with police patrolling Leeds tonight to help cut violence.

In a pioneering weekend scheme for the city centre, the doorstaff will join teams of regular constables, special constables and community support officers to patrol the streets.

Leeds is the first city where licensed premises are funding the scheme themselves and not the police or their partners.

Operation Capital was launched with three briefings of the Street Marshalls, NPT officers, special constables and an officer from British Transport Police at areas of the city known for being particularly busy.
The marshals, in yellow high-visibility bibs, include at least one PC, two special constables and two PCSOs.

Chief Insp Vernon Francis, who devised the scheme, said he and officers
from the Leeds District Licensing Department had worked closely with licensed premises for five months to secure the Street Marshalls launch.

"Keeping people safe in our city is an absolute priority and I am extremely proud to demonstrate the clear commitment of Neighbourhood Policing Team officers and our licensees to achieving this," he said.

Jim Willson, Safer Leeds Chief Officer for Drugs and Alcohol, said: "This is an excellent development. It reflects the good working relationship between the bars in Leeds, the police and the council."
