Community Safety Accredited Traffic Management Operatives
Kent Events Ltd are an ACPO accredited company under the Community Safety Accreditation Scheme (CSAS). Under this scheme organisation and their employees working in community safety are given targeted police powers.
Our Accredited Traffic Management Officers (TMO) are authorised by Chief Officer of Police and can be licenced by other forces to direct and restrict traffic movements on the public highway as a part of an events traffic management plan.
There are a number of benefits that using CSAS TMO’s provide.
- Professional approach to traffic and parking management.
- A smooth transition between the highway and your venue.
- It creates a lasting and positive impression for your clients and passers by
- Traffic congestion is limited around the event as the staff have the necessary powers to move vehicles on and direct them to the correct place, therefore benefiting you, your customers and the local community.
- There is a co-ordinated approach between highway traffic and on-site traffic which reduces delays into and out of the event.
- Staff are able to give a rapid response to traffic related problems that may arise, therefore reducing the impact on the event and communities.
- Can co-ordinate traffic to ensure emergency services can get to your event and the community where necessary.
- A cost effective alternative to using Police resources which are expensive.
