The Bardwatch system helps to maintain very low levels of crime & disorder in Stratford-upon-Avon and allows us to extend a very safe and relaxing welcome to visitors to the Town Centre.

The system is now jointly administered by Stratforward’s Town Hosts in conjunction with WRCI.  The system provides hand-held radio communication between both daytime and evening businesses, as well as intelligence and exclusion schemes via the Warwickshire Retail Crime Initiative (WRCI). 

The Warwickshire Retail Crime Initiative Limited (WRCI) is a county wide Partnership approach to prevent and reduce crime and anti-social behaviour in retail and licensed business premises in Warwickshire and it is provided free of charge to BID levy payers.

Stratforward encourages as many Town Centre businesses to become part of Bardwatch as possible, with radios available to buy or rent at very reasonable rates.
