Hotel Watch

Hotels across all districts in Bucks are being encouraged to support the Hotel Watch Scheme which is aimed at preventing child sexual exploitation and domestic violence and raising awareness to the signs that may point towards abuse taking place with the 'SAY something if you SEE something' catchline.

All districts in the county - Aylesbury, Chiltern, South Bucks and Wycombe - are involved in the scheme, in partnership with Thames Valley Police.

The Chiltern and South Bucks partnership has strong membership of local hoteliers and proprietors who want to play their part in keeping a safe environment. Hotels and bed and breakfast  premises which participate in the scheme display the distinctive Hotel Watch stickers.
