Safer Business

To increase our understanding of the crime, threats and abuse faced by businesses and shopworkers.

Safer Business Co-Op

Safer Business is one of the PCCs six key priorities

The PCC will work with the Chief Constable and partners to:

Strengthen engagement with local businesses by providing targeted crime prevention advice, to protect them and retail workers.

Gain a better understanding of the crimes faced by businesses and ensure they get the support they need to keep themselves and customers safe.

Take steps to tackle violence against shop workers and support the Co‐op’s respect for Shop Workers and the Union of Shop, Distributive, and Allied Workers campaigns.

Promote the use of SentrySIS as an online tool for business crime recording.

Support the rollout and development of shop/retail watch schemes and supportive partnerships that address business/retail crime.
