As lockdown regulations are eased and more businesses prepare to reopen, the Central City Improvement District (CCID) said it expected crime in the CBD to increase.
CCID safety and security manager Mo Hendricks said: “With lockdown having moved from level 4 to level 3, we are expecting an influx into the CBD as people return to work and businesses are operating once more.
“So, it is logical to anticipate that the CBD footfall will increase as companies bring at least a third of their workforce back to work.”
He said more motorists could also encourage criminals to return to the CBD.
