The first county-wide information-sharing system for local crime reduction partnerships targeting travelling, prolific shoplifters, has been launched in Hampshire.
The network links together business crime reduction partnerships (BCRPs) in the county's four largest population centres - Portsmouth, Southampton, Winchester and Basingstoke. It enables them to pool their information in order to identify offenders who are known in more than one of the partnerships - and therefore can reasonably be suspected of being travelling, potentially prolific, thieves.
Littoralis is proud to support the first South West Business Crime Conference at the Somerset County Cricket Club in Taunton on Monday, 11th of April.
The event is a unique opportunity for community groups, councils, police, Business Improvement Districts (BIDs), chambers of commerce and retail loss-prevention managers in the South West to find out more about the work of local community-based business crime reduction partnerships (BCRPs) - and will provide help to those interested in setting up a BCRP for their own area.
Northampton's Retail Crime Initiative (NRCI) has been driving down retail-related crime and anti-social behaviour in the town since 2001. Now Northamptonshire Police, with some seed-funding from the Police & Crime Commissioner, is supporting the extension of the successful model right across the county.
The Northampton Retail Crime Initiative has launched a new organisation - the Northamptonshire Business Crime Partnership (NBCP) - which has already set up two new retail crime initiatives covering Kettering and Wellingborough. And plans are afoot to set up two more town-centre schemes in Corby and Daventry, and two rural schemes covering East and South Northants. The aim is to provide retail crime reduction support for retailers right throughout the county.
Littoralis has announced that 200 towns and city-centres throughout the UK are now benefitting from its DISC (Database & Intranet for Safer Communities) system.
DISC is the leading online system for secure information-sharing within and between business crime-reduction partnerships. There are currently more than 120 DISC implementations throughout the UK, many of which cover multiple towns as well as extended rural areas.
Littoralis has announced a major new enhancement for DISC, its secure information-sharing system for crime management and reduction. The new function, ‘My Premises’ is available now to all DISC users, free of charge.
The availability of the new ‘My Premises’ feature will, says Littoralis, not only encourage more businesses to participate in crime reduction partnerships but provide those partnerships – mostly funded by membership subscriptions – with a potential new source of additional revenue.
