Community Safety Accreditation Scheme – CSAS

If you work as a neighbourhood or park warden, or as a security guard in a hospital, shopping mall or on a train, you may get accreditation from a chief constable under the voluntary CSAS scheme.

This framework allows public and private bodies to work in partnership with the police, providing an additional uniformed presence in communities using the skills and information already available locally.

This scheme is managed, monitored and assessed at a local level by the responsible police force. The main benefits of the scheme include:

  • Increasing uniformed presence on the streets (CSAS accredited persons wear the uniform of their employing organisation, with an identification badge endorsed by the local police force)
  • Reductions in local issues such as street drinking, begging and dog fouling
  • Saving valuable police time in community safety to deal with low-level crime and disorder
  • Promoting greater business involvement with the police, and allowing the police to influence the training of businesses, including security companies

promoting partnership working and a two-way exchange of information and intelligence between agencies.
