Personal Safety Training Sessions
In 2012 Colmore BID partnered with former Royal Marine Commando, Daniel Gibbin, to offer a series of personal safety training sessions, free of charge, to employees in the District. Following their success, further sessions were arranged in 2013 and 2014.
This programme is part of Colmore BID’s key objective to secure improvements to actual and perceived safety across the District, addressing concerns about crime and becoming a victim of crime.
The sessions provided an introduction to personal safety, including the law, crime prevention and how to manage conflict. The training focussed on verbal communication skills, including how to diffuse aggressive situations, as well as self defence actions.
