Happy Birthday Park Mark - Safer Parking Really Works

The Safer Parking Scheme is an initiative of the Association of Chief Police Officers aimed at reducing crime and the fear of crime in parking facilities.

The Park Mark is a national standard for UK car parks that have low crime and measures in place to ensure the safety of people and vehicles and is awarded to each car park that achieves the challenging standards.

Park Mark helps drivers find car parks where they can confidently leave their vehicle, knowing the environment is safer for them, their passengers and vehicle.

In the UK, a quarter of car parks have been assessed and achieved the Park Mark award. That's 5,000 of an estimated 17,000-20,000 car parks across the country where people regularly park their vehicles. Each car park undergoes a rigorous assessment by specially trained police assessors. Those achieving the award have management practices and security measures that actively reduce crime.

The scheme is managed by the British Parking Association on behalf of Secured By Design and is supported by Police services nationwide. Park Mark accredited car parks can be found at train stations, hospitals, universities, town centres, shopping centres, leisure centres, airports, supermarkets, banks and office blocks.
