Town Link Radio
Our town link digital radio system connects businesses with each other, Wimbledon Town Centre police and CCTV offering real time updates, shared information, additional employee security and crime prevention. Radios are available to purchase or to rent.
Working with both licensees and retailers, Wimbledon Town Centre has a town link digital radio scheme. Radios are connected to Merton Council’s CCTV suite and are carried by Love Wimbledon’s Town Ranger, South West Trains, and by police officers in the town centre, enabling swift and effective real-time intelligence sharing. Love Wimbledon manages the Town Link digital radio scheme on behalf of all Love Wimbledon BID members in conjunction with Wall to Wall Communications.
The scheme links retailers with each other, Wimbledon Town Centre police, and CCTV operators via handheld radios, so they can exchange information in real time and prevent crime. For example, if retailers experience shoplifting or anti-social behavior they can alert all other members of the scheme instantly. The system also provides additional security support to employees. The cost of the radio equates to about a £1 a day and there are currently approx 45 businesses on the system.
