My Local Bobby has been patrolling our area since May 2019 and is the only private security company with a patrol dedicated to our area. Since the patrol started we have seen sustained reductions in crime and Anti-Social Behaviour within our patrol area.
The patrol has over 130 subscribers and is on duty for 12 hours a day, 6 days a week and 1 day a week for 24 hours. As more subscribers join the patrol then the patrol hours will increase, with the aim being to have a 24 hour, 7 days a week patrol.
The cost of the patrol per household is £60 per month inc. VAT, less than £2 per day.
During the winter months My Local Bobby have decided to increase the patrol hours so that we have 2 days of the week with a 24-hour patrol for December, January and February. This is even without having the subscriber numbers to add the extra hours yet. My Local Bobby have taken this decision as they are conscious of the fact that as we come out of lockdown, combined with us moving into the Christmas period, crime will unfortunately but inevitably increase. We hope that during the next 3 months we can increase subscriber numbers to make this second 24-hour day a week a permanent part of the patrol.
Even outside of patrol hours My Local Bobby provide emergency cover along with an alarm response service, inclusive in the current subscription. Meaning between the patrol service and the out of hours emergency response call service, cover is provided 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
My Local Bobby also offer key holding service (for subscribers only) at £90.00 per month inc. VAT. This fee will include the normal patrol services, so for those who are wanting to upgrade their service, it will only be a monthly increase of £30 additional to what you are currently paying.
