Arc Inspirations pumps up Police bike patrols

By • Nov 3rd, 2008 • Category: Community

Award winning, Leeds based independent bar and restaurant operator, Arc Inspirations, is donating two specially modified, all-terrain mountain bikes plus panniers and accessories worth £2,000 to the Neighbourhood Policing Teams, which cover the Headingley area.

The new set of wheels, featuring logos from the company’s three bars/restaurants in Headingley, The Arc, The Box and Trio, will allow trained and experienced officers to patrol the local area more quickly than on foot and gain access to areas not suitable for vehicles as well as increasing response times. The new bikes will complement the fleet of bikes already in use in the area by police constables and community officers.

Arc inspirations has built a strong relationship with neighbourhood Policing teams and is strategically involved in projects promoting the safe and sensible use of alcohol. Furthermore, the Teams regularly use the company’s facilities for training sessions.

Commenting on the donation, Arc Inspirations managing director, Martin Wolstencroft said

“As a restaurant and bar operator it is our responsibility to support  the neighbourhood Policing Teams in as many ways possible and work in partnership with them to promote responsible drinking and to reduce anti social behaviour.

“Donating the bikes is our way of giving something back to the community and saying thank you for all the support we receive. We hope that the additional bikes will go some way to help reduce crime in the Headingley area and increase feelings of safety amongst members of the community.”

Inspector Ian Croft of Leeds North West Inner Neighbourhood Policing Teams added:

“We are keen to build on the good relationship between the local Neighbourhood Policing Teams and local business to prevent crime and anti social behaviour in the Headingley area. The generous donation by Arc Inspirations of the two new bikes will lead to extra visible policing on the streets of headingley and will act as a crime reduction measure in the local community.”

Arc Inspirations managing director, Martin Wolstencroft is chair of Headingley Pub Watch, which takes a positive and professional approach to licensed activity, with the ultimate aim of providing a safer, cleaner and greener environment for the whole Headingley community. the organisation also produces flyers and t-shirts to encourage students to act responsibly particularly during Fresher’s Week.
