Kingston upon Thames's parking attendants are to work in partnership with the police to help prevent and detect crime and anti-social behaviour in the borough.

Senior representatives from the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames, Kingston Police and NCP will sign a formal partnership document aimed at strengthening links between the three organisations.

Parking attendants will now have a duty to record any evidence of crime and disorder that they encounter during their patrol and will feed this intelligence back to the police. They will also help with crime prevention by alerting the police to issues such as cars that have been left with valuables on display or vehicles that have been left unlocked.

In return, the police have reaffirmed their commitment to help NCP and Kingston clamp down on the physical and verbal attacks made by members of the public against NCP staff.
