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.

DISC training session

Join us in the Turing Room at Bristol Aquarium for a training session on how to use DISC information and sharing system. Sessions take place on:

Monday 11th November from 10am to 11am
Tuesday 19th November from 11am to 12pm
(both sessions are the same, participants need only attend one).

DISC is a method of sharing police intelligence, facts and figures, and is predominantly for the retail/night time sectors. Using DISC, you’ll be able to:

View ‘galleries’ of individuals who are currently excluded from our Members’ premises, or who we believe are active in local crime and anti-social behaviour.

Submit incident reports on people who are already on the intranet, or who may be new to us.

Provide ‘intelligence reports’ which might be useful to us in monitoring excluded or targeted offenders.

Help us put names to unidentified CCTV images.

Receive a weekly e-newsletter showing what has been added to the intranet in the last week, including new offenders, news, alerts and upcoming events.

Email Paula Ratcliffe to register your interest in attending this event.
