According to an article posted in the Romsey Advertiser, Purple Flag accreditation is given to towns and cities in the UK that have proven to have a sterling safety record. With over 2000 towns and cities in the UK and only around 50 that have received the coveted award, the competition is tough. Winchester’s partnership with UK BID has seen them turn the town into a vibrant hub of night life and an effective variety of different businesses.
Receiving Purple Flag Accreditation is based on a number of factors, including efficient CCTV security systems. The general reception of the award is that it reflects well on local businesses and shows that companies are pulling together to ensure the safety of the public, customers and staff alike.
A spokesperson from leading business security specialists, AlertSystems, remarked that ‘this is an outstanding achievement for the little Hampshire City. The achievement of a purple flag accreditation shows that the community as a whole has pulled together to ensure the safety of the general public through the implementation of CCTV. This is particularly impressive when you consider that businesses, rival companies and those with ulterior agendas have come together to ensure that this beautiful town is suitably safe during the night time.
‘Purple Flag Accreditation is majorly based on the prominence and efficacy of CCTV security systems. CCTV can promote a safe environment for members of staff and customers.
‘This achievement means that the city is amongst other, beautiful UK cities such as Oxford, Torquay, Chelmsford and neighbouring Salisbury. With any luck, the fact that Winchester and other towns are consistently receiving this award will inspire other towns and businesses to install effective CCTV security systems and to achieve the purple flag accreditation themselves.’
