Both Broadmead BID and Bristol City Centre BID have their own independent radio systems, these systems support the retail and hospitality businesses within each area and are in operation 24/7. The aspiration is to combine these systems by the end of 2021.
Linking businesses, security teams and rangers with each other and the Operations Centre also helps to facilitate emergency links with the police.
Members can use the radios as a fast, easy, and reliable way to communicate and support each other when an issue arises. They can also contact the Operations Centre – functioning 24 hours a day, 365 days a year -, or raise the alarm for urgent assistance when it is not possible to call 999.
The radio system operates across all our member businesses throughout the day and night. It supports the DiSC system and is part of the BCRP’s investment to help businesses stay better connected and informed for a safer city.
