Civic Center security guards are on duty starting at 8 p.m. due to some meetings at the base of authority extending well into the evening and even later.

Council bosses said the scheme, which was launched in July, responded to a national debate on issues such as women’s safety, and they added that it had not been prompted by any personnel incidents. .

Tim Johnson, chief executive of Wolverhampton Council, said: “The tragic murders of Sarah Everard and Sabina Nessa in London last year sparked a national debate about women’s safety.

“Led by a staff forum, we conducted a staff survey and as a result the escort service was developed as a measure that can help our staff feel safe, especially when working late or after dark.

“He was not prompted by any personnel-related incidents and it is important to stress that Wolverhampton is generally a very safe place to live and work.

“As a responsible employer, we take the health and well-being of our staff very seriously and are proud to listen to their views and support their suggestions.

“The escort service builds on an informal arrangement that was already in place and is one of many measures the council has introduced in recent years to improve the health and well-being of our workforce. .

“Although there were isolated cases of youth violence in the city center earlier this year, coordinated activity by multiple police-led agencies has resulted in a significant reduction in recent months.”
