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. 


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. 


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


Safer London would like to share with members that Metropolitan Police Deputy Commissioner Craig Mackey has been appointed as the new NPCC lead for Business Crime Reduction and private Security Liaison following the retirement of Nottinghamshire Police Temporary Chief Constable Sue Fish in March 2017. 

Every day thousands of computer systems all over the world are attacked. There are criminals who take advantage of the anonymity of the online world to deceive, hack and steal if the opportunity arises.

As part of the latest round of police transformation funding, Home Secretary Amber Rudd has recently awarded over £1 million across 3 years to Nottinghamshire Police to set up a national business crime reduction hub that will address business crime in a more consistent way across the UK (this will be a new shared capability to coordinate activity in order to respond to the evolving crime threat to businesses).

On Tuesday 28th March 2017, the new UK £1 coin will enter circulation, and The Royal Mint is producing 1.5 billion of the new coins.

Safer London Business Partnership and Clapham BID have recently won a silver award at the 2016 Problem Orientated Partnership (POP) Awards 2016. The POP award recognises best practice in crime prevention projects within the capital, where partner agencies have applied rational and evidence–based analysis of problems and their solutions within a policing context.
