The Folkestone Area Partnership Against Crime is a 'not for profit' organisation forming a subsidiary of Folkestone Town Centre Management Ltd.
Who we are
FAPAC is a Crime Reduction Partnership operating shopwatch and pubwatch schemes for the benefit of local retailers, licensed premises and the public of Shepway. Our goal is to achieve a safer environment for the whole community in which to live, work and socialise. We achieved Safer Business and Safer Socialising Awards in 2012, 2011 and 2008 respectively.
What we do
Improve safety and security in public places and the retail environment.
FAPAC provides a town net radio connecting members to each other, local police and CCTV.
FAPAC collates and shares information, delivering a monthly a 'Intelligence report' that identifies and warns members about active offenders and their criminality, which affects quality of life and damages local enterprise.
FAPAC excludes target offenders from all member premises including shops, libraries and places of entertainment.
