Safe Places National Network
The Safe Places National Network was created to break down the borders and barriers vulnerable people face every day and unite the patchwork of Safe Place & Keep Safe schemes to create a truly accessible nationwide network of support.
Becoming a member of the National Network isn’t just about joining a Safe Places club. Membership of the National Network provides a fantastic range of accessible benefits, which are detailed in the Membership Pack (PDF Document). Find out more about the Southampton membership here (PDF Document) or visit www.safeplaces.org.uk to see more about the network.
Safe Places – Information for Businesses
We have created a dedicated page for businesses, with information about becoming a Safe Place: Safe Places – Information for Businesses

‘Ask for Angela’ is a national campaign headed by the Metropolitan Police and Safer Sounds. The safety initiative has been developed to provide vulnerable individuals with a way to discretely ask for help from venue staff in situations where they may feel unsafe. Learn more here.

Charging the battery
The charger pocket is designed for different battery shapes and sizes. Ensure that a radio with a battery attached or battery alone is inserted correctly. If a radio with a battery attached or battery alone is inserted incorrectly, the indicator will not illuminate, indicating that the battery is not being charged. In some cases, new batteries might indicate a STEADY GREEN on the charger indicator.
To ensure optimum performance, Motorola recommends all new batteries be left in the charger until the charger indicator displays a STEADY GREEN.
- Once a battery or a radio with a battery is properly inserted into the charger, the charger begins to rapid charge the battery and is indicated by a STEADY RED on the charger indicator. The length of time the charger indicates STEADY RED depends on the state of charge of the battery.
- Competition of rapid charge (>90% available capacity) is indicated by a FLASHING GREEN on the charger indicator, This indicates the Top-Off charge (trickle charge) and requires approximately 1 hour.
- Completion of Top-Off charge is indicated by a STEAD GREEN on the charger indicator. This indicates the battery is fully charged.
- Other indications that may appear on the charger indicator while charging are:
- FLASHING YELLOW – indicates that either the battery may be approaching the end of its rated service life. While this battery is fully charged, its charging capacity has been reduced by usage and may not adequately support heavier applications. This is available only when used with Motorola IMPRES batteries. This is not a fault indication, but a notification to the user that the battery may soon no longer be able to yield expected service and may need to be replaced.
- FLASHING RED – indicates that the battery is unchangeable. This could be the result of a loss of contact between the battery and the charger. Charging resumes when the condition causing this indication is corrected.
