The India Protocol is a common sense advanced safeguarding system that has comprehensively increased the safety and security of lone females in Cheltenham's night time economy.
Created by Terry Howard the founder of Cheltenham Guardians CERT after the rape and murder of India Eve Chipchase in 2016, the India Protocol is the primary function of the organisation.
The India Protocol utilises a tried and tested approach, ascertain and assist method targeting lone females. Approximately 3 out of every 10 contacts we make in this way results in further interaction or intervention by our officers.
Quite often, an individual in distress within a night time economy environment will not approach door security, the police or indeed anybody else for assistance. The India Protocol removes this problem by proactive engagement.
Supported by the Chipchase family we are fully committed to seeing the India Protocol rolled out in night time economies throughout the United Kingdom.
In memory of India Eve Chipchase.
