Brighton & Hove Business Crime Reduction Partnership [BCRP] has been awarded a distinction in the prestigious Safer Business Award from the Association of Business Crime Partnerships [ABCP].
The Partnership had to undergo a rigorous audit process to ensure that it operates to nationally recognised standards observing the highest levels of data integrity. To ensure those standards are maintained, all partnerships are inspected by ABCP before being accredited.
The Safer Business Award accreditation now has two levels; for those partnerships that are well advanced and have shown evidence of greater achievement and innovation, there is a distinction grade. For all others there is a simple pass grade. Brighton & Hove Business Crime Reduction Partnership received a "Distinction" which is great news for the Partnership and its members.
Sandy Hobbs from Association of Business Crime Partnerships praised the Brighton & Hove scheme for the way it operates, the systems it has in place to help prevent and detect both criminal and anti-social behaviour and for the state-of-the-art secure website which keeps members up to date with criminal activities and allows them to report incidents and share target photos on-line.
Sandy Hobbs commented, "I am very impressed with the operation of Brighton & Hove's BCRP. It continues to evolve and extend the work of the members into areas that have previously been untouched by partnership working. Lisa and her team are enthusiastic and are continually thinking "outside the box". The support that the Board of Management provides strengthens this resolve and I can only praise the whole scheme and the initiatives they operate. I have no hesitation in recommending Brighton & Hove's BCRP to be held as a model of "Excellent Practice" and therefore pass the accreditation with a distinction."
