A member of the National Association of Business Crime Partnerships, we work in partnership with the police, local authorities and local traders to help make Maidstone a safer place to visit, work and live.
Our Maidstone Retail Exclusion Notice Scheme gives a clear message to offenders that crime is not tolerated in the town.

Safer Socialising Award
As holders of the Safer Business Award Accreditation, MaidSafe manage the Safer Socialising Award. A certificate is awarded to successful premises us following an inspection process involving the partnership, police, local authority licensing and the fire service. The award ensures that high standards of management are maintained.
Urban Blue Bus
We are proud to support the Maidstone Community Bus Urban Blue, a local charity that works in partnership with the Primary Care Trust, Maidstone Police and Maidstone Borough Council.
It is used every Saturday night in the town centre providing a valuable resource for medical problems and the general welfare of people socialising in the town.
Maidstone Street Pastors
Street Pastors work closely alongside the police, paramedics and the Urban Blue Bus. They provide emotional, spiritual and practical support to those in need.
MaidSafe are very proud to be in partnership with TMS Protection Ltd who provide the Saturday night Taxi Marshal Scheme for the Night Time Economy based in the High Street. This scheme was introduced in 2012 and was influential in helping Maidstone achieve the Purple Flag status in 2014.
