Fight crime with business partnership

Alert message sent 27/01/2021 09:16:00

Information sent on behalf of South Yorkshire Police

Crime and the fear of crime can impact on the profitability of your business. Joining a partnership will help you to reduce shoplifting and anti-social behaviour as well as theft from your customers. The added benefit is that it will empower you, your employees and your partners, helping to educate and instil greater peace of mind for all.

There are various crime prevention initiatives which are proving effective in helping to combat crime against businesses. Check out those listed below, to see which best suits your business needs. By being in constant touch with other businesses – sharing information, intelligence and ideas – you’ll be far better protected.

Business Improvement District (BID)

A Business Improvement District is a business-led and funded body formed to represent and improve a defined commercial area. They can be a powerful tool for directly involving local businesses in local activities, and allow the business community and local authorities to work together to improve the local trading environment.

For business owners, this means that you are plugged into a cohesive organisation that has your interests at heart, and will keep you informed of, and involved in, local initiatives designed to maintain a safer environment.

Police and Security (PaS)

Police and Security is a business-led initiative designed to simplify and improve collaboration, communication, coordination, trust and feedback between the police and the private security industry.

If you’re interested in receiving regular updates from the PaS hub, simply register online for information sharing and weekly updates.


Pubwatch is a voluntary scheme which allows licensees to work together to reduce anti-social behaviour related to alcohol and substance misuse, improving the safety of their premises for customers, staff and the local community.

Shared radio scheme

Joining a shared radio scheme will give you direct access to a radio network, which is monitored by local police officers, CCTV suites and other businesses, meaning that warnings of criminal activity can be efficiently communicated between members.

Secured Environments

Secured Environments is a police certification scheme awarded to organisations that are able to show they have adopted six key principles for protecting themselves against crime.
