Here is some useful advice to help you verify the legitimacy of the Street Pastor you have spoken to.
All Street Pastors are required to wear a Street Pastor Jacket, Polo/Denim Shirt, and a cap or beanie. At night there will be a minimum of 3 Street Pastors together nearby each other. In the day time there will be a minimum of 2 but they will be together. Street Pastors are not allowed to operate as a single person in public.
All Street Pastors will also be required to carry an ID card and they will look like 1 of 2 designs:
Any card that does not look like this is a false card and the individual is not a representative of the Street Pastor team.
If you have a concern about the legitimacy of a Street Pastor you can email the local team by using the following template: Area@streetpastors.org.uk (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org)
in an emergency, please contact 999.
