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.
We’re also raising awareness of #ShopKind, a joint campaign between retailers and Crimestoppers which aims to build positivity and encourage kindness to both shopworkers and consumers in stores.
To help you safeguard your staff and your business, visit the Business Crime Prevention page here on our website. There's advice on shop security, tips on protecting your business from shoplifters and ways to prevent theft from staff.
Look on our social media channels for more crime prevention advice throughout the week of action.
