By working together, Vauxhall One will be able invest at least nearly £4million directly into improving Vauxhall over the next five years.

This money will also be used to attract further funding from other sources. Talking to businesses in the runup to the BID ballot helped us identify the actions that would mean most to our members. 

We are reducing street crime and antisocial behaviour by becoming one of the first BIDs in the UK to build on the Met Police's S92 Police Officer scheme. The S92 agreement, sees Vauxhall One pay for the cost of one police officer with the Met matching that funding for an additional officer, this means that Vauxhall now has two additonal full time police officers dedicated to Vauxhall.
CCTV Cameras
A total of six new CCTV cameras have been purchaased and installed by us around the Vauxhall area, all of which can be monitored and controlled by our dedicated S92 officers 24 hours a day
Crime Stats
In the last year the area of Vauxhall has seen a 5% reduction in crime
