The National Association of Business Crime Partnerships is an independent not-for-profit organisation working with business crime reduction partnerships (BCRPs), police, local authorities and other agencies to help businesses reduce the impact and cost of crime against them, their staff and the communities they trade in. NABCP works with retailers, the evening economy, transport and other business sectors to reduce crime affecting business in our towns, cities and shopping centres. We aim to do this by working together in partnership with our business members, police and other local statutory agencies and organisations.
Our regional managers have worked with these sectors to create BCRPs as an effective way to reduce crime, violence and anti-social behaviour in our towns and cities. Our work is now expanding to provide services to other business sectors in other areas of crime, working with with our members, the police, ACPO and other local statutory agencies and organisations.
NABCP will continue to represent the interests of BCRPs and seek to expand its influence and work. We believe that neighbourhood policing presents an opportunity for partnerships and police to work more closely together and for recognition of the key role played by partnerships.
