Police Parking Award for Bangor Marina

Police Parking Award for Bangor Marina

Bangor Marina car park has been awarded "Park Mark" safer parking status by the Safer Parking Scheme. The scheme, which is an initiative of the Association of Chief Police Officers, is aimed at reducing crime and the fear of crime in parking facilities across the United Kingdom.

The award is given to parking facilities that have met the requirements of a risk assessment carried out by police and Bangor Marina car park is the first marina car park in Northern Ireland to receive it. Commenting on the award, Superintendent Brian Kee, Community Safety and Service Delivery for C District, said: "As police officers, we want to keep people safe and we want to minimise their chances of becoming a victim of crime. "The fact that this car park has been recognised for the high standards of safety and security means those using this car park can be reassured appropriate measures have been put in place to help prevent crime and keep them safe."

Commenting on the award, Kevin Baird, Bangor Marina Manager and Harbour Master, said: "Boat owner safety is our top priority and I am delighted that parking facilities at Bangor Marina have been recognised as offering high security standards through the Park Mark award. I trust it will give boat owners confidence knowing that we take their safety and security very seriously, not only while afloat, but in our parking facility too."
