The Printworks are being awarded ‘Business Watch Coordinator of the Year’ as part of Greater Manchester Police’s (GMP) Business Watch scheme.
Blaine Bradbury MBE, security operations manager for The Printworks has been awarded the accolade for his work in partnership with other agencies to reduce crime and antisocial behaviour while providing a support to police. This was most recently illustrated in the aftermath of the Manchester Arena bomb when the team at Manchester Printworks provided lifesaving first aid.
He and his team regularly support and contribute to a number of crime prevention groups such as the ‘Manchester City Centre Crime Prevention Panel’, the ‘Business Crime Reduction Partnership’, the ‘Business Sentinel Strategic Group’ and the ‘Manchester Pub and Club Watch’.
Speaking about the award, Blaine Bradbury, said: “I am delighted to receive this award on behalf of all my colleagues here at the Printworks. As a busy city centre leisure scheme, it is imperative that we work closely with the police and our local business partners. It is through this close communication and positive working relationship that a more safe and secure experience can be provided to our customers.”
GMP City of Manchester Chief Inspector Gareth Parkin, said: “Blaine is a worthy recipient of this award, both he and his team have consistently supported the police to provide a safer and more secure environment for workers and visitors to enjoy.”
The Printworks management would like to thank Blaine and the security team for their consistent hard work.
