The report, compiled by uSwitch, analysed the 200 most-used car parks in England, Wales and Northern Ireland to identify those car parks where vehicles are most likely to be safe. APCOA currently operates 19 of those car parks and is pleased to see 6 of them appear in the top 10 and none in the bottom 40.
Regional Managing Director for APCOA UK & Ireland, Kim Challis, comments: “I believe this achievement is the result of a strong safety and security ethos across APCOA for customers and employees. It has been a key focus for us in recent years and I am proud to see the effort and commitment we have put into safety recognised in this way. APCOA will continue to strive to improve safety and security at all the sites we manage.”
Supported by clients, many of the car parks APCOA operates have achieved the Park Mark® Safer Parking Award. The Park Mark® Safer Parking Scheme is a Police Crime Prevention Initiative and is aimed at reducing both crime and the fear of crime in parking facilities. The award is managed by the British Parking Association (BPA) and involves a rigorous annual assessment by specially trained police assessors.
