NBCC launches national week of action to target business crime
The National Business Crime Centre (NBCC) is holding a national week of action to support businesses and reduce business crime across the country.
The week of Action will start on Monday 17th October and involve police forces and partners working together to hold targeted operations in towns and city centres, running high profile media and social media campaigns, and engaging with local businesses, retailers and the community to raise awareness of business crime in the area.
The City of London Police, who host the NBCC, will be holding a Safer Business Action (SaBA) Day to deliver a focussed operation with joint patrols, the targeted intervention of offenders and a range of crime prevention activity including raising awareness of the local issues with the general public.
Supt Patrick Holdaway, lead for the NBCC said: “The week of action is an opportunity to bring police and partners together to tackle the key issues of business crime in their communities. Each police force taking part will be holding various crime prevention activities and initiatives to increase engagement with local businesses and retail outlets and tackle some of the most prolific offenders.”
Businesses trading on high streets and town centres are also encouraged to get involved and display the ShopKind messaging in their stores. All the ShopKind materials are free to download here.
Edward Woodall, ShopKind campaign co-ordinator said: “We encourage all businesses to get behind the national week of action and share messages with their customers and colleagues about ShopKind”
The NBCC social media channels on LinkedIn and Twitter will have updates of the activity taking place throughout the week.
