Street Pastors

Street Pastors is an exciting venture providing a prayerful Christian presence on the streets near the pubs and clubs of our town between the hours of 10pm and 4am. Already in 11 cities up and down the country as well as over a third of the London boroughs, Street Pastors is beginning to have an effect on the street crime statistics in the areas where it operates.

Inspector Ian Bamber of Swindon Police says, "Ultimately it's about having another uniformed presence in the town. Because of the Police's role in enforcement, people on a night out associate us with arresting people, but the pastors should be a more neutral presence. On the places where it has already been implemented, the crime reduction figures look really promising."
Street Pastors are not there to enforce the law, but work at getting alongside those who are vulnerable so that they don't become the next crime victim.
