BSIA member company, Regency Security Services (UK) Ltd, is the first in the country to provide community marshal patrols to a Parish Council. Councillors in Tiptree believe there is a falling police presence in the village.
The six month trial, starting in mid-July and set up with Braintree-based Regency Security Service, will see marshals tour areas in Tiptree which attract anti-social behaviour.
Villagers who witness anti-social behaviour are urged to log low-level incidents to the council, which will then decide whether the area should be included within the patrols.
