We have initiated Bristol’s first Business Crime Reduction Partnership (BCRP) to highlight and address the significant crime that affects all local business.

The partnership brings the police, businesses and the city council together to identify crime issues, collate information and intelligence about criminal activity, and agree response plans. DISC, an incident and information sharing system, will be provided to businesses and we are working to secure additional Avon and Somerset Police officers to address the specific concerns of levy paying businesses.

BCRPs in other cities have been shown to improve crime prevention and reduction opportunities through better sharing of information between businesses, and by nurturing a better relationship and response from police and local authorities.
