Enforcement officers

My idea is for Enforcement Officers to Patrol and move on Beggers from Cash Points within Bristol. It is very unsettling, especially for loan females, when withdrawing cash, especially at night. You feel like you have to give something.

Also moving on Skateboarders from Car Parks, Private Areas, Buisness Parks and other areas as it looks bad and damage is being caused, and I know it is for a fact.

Why the contribution is important

This is a good idea because it will improve the look of Bristol because of this situation, and also make people feel safer.

    Please note
    Enforcement action against begging would be a police responsibility
    Worth bearing in mind that under the pressure of finding £90 million additional savings, the council will be losing employees as well

    Agreed but certain Security Firms have what's known as a CSAS badge which gives you certain police powers and it's recognised with A&S Police.

    What a poorly thought out, narrow-minded and negative view. Where do you propose to move the beggars to? What will stop them from returning as soon as your enforcer has left? Given the proposed spending cuts how will these 'enforcers' be paid?

    Why not propose a positive idea to help address the homelessness issue, rather than sugggesting it be swept under the rug to superficially improve Bristol's image?

    Surely you have more legitmate concerns than beggars trying to get a few coins and kids having fun in car parks?

    Kids having fun in carparks, I can tell you for a fact that cars get damaged and these kids couldn't care less in the Carpark behind City Hall, would you like it if your car or bike got damaged because these kids were ' just having fun'!!? I think not.
    And it's not a narrow minded idea at all, you ask anyone you like of they feel uncomfortable late at night with these people hanging around cash points. It's a problem that needs addressing and not swept under the carpet at all.
