Finalist at Security & Fire Excellence Virtual Awards 2020!
We are delighted to announce that one of our BCRPs, Safer Lewisham has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Security & Fire Excellence Awards 2020 under the category security partnering initiative of the year.
Safer Lewisham prides itself in the relationship it has in Lewisham Shopping Centre with the MPS local teams, Interserve (Lewisham Shopping Centre security provider), Council CCTV and our members inside the centre. Last year we started a project with the security team in the Centre called STAR (Security Team Acting Responsibilities) which gives responsibilities to the security officers to look after specific areas of the Centre with the aim to upskill the business security team whilst gather relevant intel for the BCRP to action. The scheme has led to increased motivation and satisfaction amongst all those involved. Not to mention stock loss retrieval to our members as we all work together as one team.
In almost one year, we collected more than 100 offenders on our database and we actioned this intel, issuing 17 Exclusion Notice (for offenders with more than 3 offences on their profile), which led the partnership work towards issuing 6 CPW, which evolved in 4 CPN and we are now very close to applying for our first CBO.
Fingers crossed for us
