The University of Warwick has announced it will continue to fund the Leamington Street Marshals for a further five years. The scheme helps both safeguard students after a night out and promotes positive community relations by encouraging students to behave responsibly whilst walking through residential areas.
The scheme is a partnership between the University of Warwick, the Students' Union, Warwick District Council, Warwickshire Police and SafetyNet Security Group and is funded by the University.
The Leamington scheme was set up following a pilot in in 2013. Due to the success of the previous scheme, which was highly cost-effective, the University of Warwick has now decided to fund it for a further five years.
