National week of action to target and reduce business crime
Main article content
We’re supporting the National Business Crime Centre’s (NBCC) national week of action to help reduce business crime and support a safe business community.
The week of action (17-24 October) involves police and partners working together, holding targeted operations across the country. In Derbyshire, our officers will be talking to local businesses, retailers and the wider community to raise awareness of business crime and offering prevention advice.
Crime against a business can take many forms: from shoplifting and people not paying in restaurants, to staff theft and burglary. It also includes aggressive, abusive, or violent behaviour against retail workers. We know many incidents go unreported and we want to encourage retailers to report to us where they can.
