Hull Business Improvement District (Bid) is aiming to improve safety in the area after investing in 500 alarms.
The devices are available to workers via their employers as part of a scheme introduced to offer protection, especially to women.Well, that's Hull for you...
Matthew Wright, Hull Neighbourhood Network Co-ordinator, said: "This is our first foray into the retail of security goods.
"We were very pleased to help Hull Bid because equipment like this is not easily available from anywhere else and it does make a difference to personal safety."Oooh! If you are championing 'equipment that helps personal safety', can they have these?
Or was that not the sort of 'equipment' you had in mind?
