Making London safer and more secure for us all

London has one of the most diverse and thriving business communities in the world, and the role of the Safer London Business Partnership is to help ensure this always remains the case.

As the leading Business Crime Reduction Partnership (BCRP) in the capital, Safer London works closely with businesses large and small to ensure our town centres flourish, free from crime, and make sure business crime is, and remains a key priority on the political and local agenda. We provide our members with an effective tool for communication and a voice to speak up in the fight against business crime, and its often damaging impact on communities. 

With members ranging from large multiples such as John Lewis and McDonalds to the independent traders, small local pubs to Ministry of Sound, the Safer London Business Partnership is the umbrella organisation who coordinates and administers several BCRPs across some of London most challenging boroughs, covering the evening and night time economy, retail and office space and major tourist destinations. Our Partnerships are joint initiatives that offer members the chance to help to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour which affects them, their customers and the communities they operate in. 

KNOWLEDGE IS KEY

Our Partnerships promote consistent joint working and effective information sharing in the fight against crime. In 2014, the Mayor’s office commissioned the first ever 'Business Crime Attitude Survey' which found members of a BCRP feel significantly more informed about local police activity and feel more confident in the way crime is being dealt with in their local area. We feel the reason for this is simple: our BCRP reaches out to 2000 businesses with alerts and key crime prevention messages, making you aware of how issues are being dealt, in areas that matter to you most. 

FOR BUSINESSES

The Safer London Business Partnership is a crime reduction scheme run in partnership with the Metropolitan Police Service and local councils. For just £10 a week, you can be part of our effective communication network, connecting businesses together and supporting you with the tools and intelligence to help you prevent and detect crime which often has a significant negative impact on the profitability of your business.

Safer London Partnership will help you to reduce crime by keeping you informed of current crime prevention information, local crime trends and images and intelligences on prolific, often organised travelling teams and individuals.

Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success" - Henry Ford
