Who we are
Safer Business Network is a not for profit organisation which coordinates and administers several award winning business crime reduction partnerships (BCRPs) across some of London most challenging and diverse boroughs. BCRP’s are private membership schemes which bring businesses together, with the police, council and other interested stakeholders to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour that have negative impacts on profitability of businesses and the ‘look and feel’ of town centre environments.
Safer Business Network is the leading BCRP in the capital, reaching over 2000 businesses with our key alerts and messages. Endorsed as best practice in the MOPAC Crime & Policing plan 2017-21, we represent businesses ranging in scale from small independents to globally recognised brands in both the daytime and night time economies.
By placing ourselves at the forefront of business crime, as can offer our members the tools and equipment you need to prevent crime and disorder in and around your business, allowing it to flourish.
By joining the BCRP, you have direct access to a state-of-the-art digital radio network and an approved secure website and app which provides up-to-date images of offenders operating in your area. Each BCRP has its own team of expert staff who address the needs of the business community and offer a point of contact for business crime matters.
Safer Business Network is an award winning BCRP, recognised by the MPS and the Federation of Small Business, and is the largest in the capital. At a time of reduced resources and increasing demands on Police Service, the BCRP has an even more important role to play in preventing crime and connecting business for a safer London.
