Business Crime Reduction Partnerships

The National Association of Business Crime Partnerships is an independent not-for-profit organisation working with local business crime reduction partnerships (BCRPs) and other partners to help businesses reduce the impact and cost of crime against them, their staff and the communities they trade in.

Local partnerships bring together businesses, security staff and police to help reduce crime, many through group radio systems and close relationships with CCTV operators.

Business security 

Take a look at our top tips for helping to keep your business secure:
  • Use security guards – depending on the type and size of your business, physical security should be considered.
  • Make sure your staff report suspicious activity to your security staff or to us.
  • Identify where it may be easier for criminals to force entry and plan regular checks of those areas.
  • Always keep service doors locked when not in use.
  • Regularly check CCTV and alarm systems are fully operational.
  • Keep a record of your key-holders’ contact details.
  • Remove expensive goods from windows overnight. 
  • Keep as little cash as possible on the premises.
  • Make someone responsible for operating the CCTV and downloading images so they can be quickly accessed if needed.
