Making London safer and more secure for us all

One of the world's most visited cities, London has something for everyone: from history and culture to fine food and good times. London’s diversity means it has a thriving business community. 

All this means that, sadly, it is also an area which attracts crime including petty theft, shoplifting, drug-related activity and alcohol related disorder. Safer London is working with the Metropolitan Police Service [MPS], local councils and local businesses to address illegal activity and anti-social behaviour. 

The Safer London Business Partnership is the umbrella organisation which coordinates and administers various business crime reduction partnerships [BCRPs] across London. These partnerships are joint initiatives that offers members the chance to help to reduce shoplifting, theft, alcohol related disorder and other anti-social behaviour which affects their businesses.

For businesses

The Safer London Business Partnership is a crime reduction scheme run in partnership with the Metropolitan Police Service and Local Councils. Crime and the fear of crime have a significant negative impact on the profitability of your business. Safer London Partnership will help you to reduce shoplifting, alcohol related disorder, anti-social behaviour, street drinking, begging and theft from your customers.

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

For visitors and residents

A focus on reducing low level crime is our highest priority and by working closely with the police and councils and communicating with the business community using the latest technology, we provide immediate proactive support when an incident occurs and help plan initiatives for the longer term security of neighbourhoods.
