The NSW Government today has teamed with the Police Force, the Australian Hotels Association and the City of Sydney to launch the internationally recognised “Ask for Angela” safety campaign within the Sydney CBD.

Under the program, which originated two years ago in Lincolnshire, England, when a patron “Asks for Angela” at a participating venue, the code-word triggers a response from trained staff who will discreetly escort that person to safety or contact authorities for further assistance.

“Ask for Angela sends a message that creepy behaviour will not be tolerated and that nobody has the right to make anyone else feel threatened in any way,” Councillor Miller said.
