Bus stop adverts are the route to security

By Leon Symons, September 2, 2010

Bus stop Community Security Trust advertisements giving guidance on reporting antisemitic incidents will be a feature of the CST's High Holy Days campaign in the major London centres.

Following a successful trial in Golders Green and Temple Fortune last year, the framed adverts will additionally appear in Hendon, Edgware, Barkingside, plus a Yiddish and English version in Stamford Hill. The project will again receive Home Office funding.

More than 3,000 hours of volunteer security work will be undertaken in London and the Home Counties over the festival period. Volunteers, synagogue security officers and police representatives were at a briefing at the CST headquarters on Tuesday.

Barnet borough commander Neil Basu said: "The Met is proud to be a close partner of the CST and we will be working together, including joint patrols, to ensure the Jewish community is safe" over the festivals.
