CSAS (Community Safety Accreditation Scheme)

Since 2009, CSP is nationally accredited by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) to deliver the Community Safety Accreditation Scheme (CSAS) .The CSAS scheme was originally designed to alleviate pressure on Police resources and since its introduction it has grown to become a cost effective traffic management solution for event organisers. Not only does this allow for the local police to focus on the prevention of crime and disorder, but it promotes flexibility and dynamic control of vehicular ingress and egress phases.

We were part of a small pool of companies to take part of the scheme with Surrey & Suffolk Police and were successful in growing our portfolio to a total of eight constabularies, including:

Metropolitan Thames Valley
Surrey Cambridgeshire
Gwent Hampshire
Sussex Suffolk/ Norfolk

All our CSAS personnel are vetted accordingly to the widely recognised Non Police Personnel Vetting Level 2 (NPPV2) standard which is the national requirement for all prospective CSAS marshals.

Below are some of the venues where we provide CSAS marshals:
