This paper reports on a staged research project conducted in a major city in the south of England. It largely involved an evaluative effort to consider the development, implementation and the perspectives of different key actors about the impact of a local Street Pastors project on areas of the night-time economy (NTE). We first set out the origins of the Street Pastors movement, before describing the methods employed in the research. While early findings are presented the purpose is at this stage to provoke debate and to provide an early commentary for what has far-reaching implications for community safety generally, and even further, for large areas of public policy.
