Business Crime Reduction Partnership

Creating a safe and secure city centre.

CityCo manages Manchester’s Business Crime Reduction Partnership (BCRP) to report and tackle business-related crime. We support the work of Greater Manchester Police, City Council Licensing and Anti-Social Behaviour teams.

The partnership manages a city centre ‘Civil Exclusion Scheme’ to record crime incidents, identify persons and issue exclusion notices.

Members also have access to StoreNet/NiteNet radios connected to city centre CCTV and are provided real-time, secure offender intelligence online.

The team delivers venue security training on Crime Prevention, Conflict Avoidance, Fraud Prevention, Counterfeit Currency, Making Statements and Reporting.

CityCo’s Business Crime Unit has achieved annual ‘Accreditation with Distinction’ by the National Association of Business Crime Partnerships and received a Divisional Commanders Award from Greater Manchester Police to recognise outstanding partnership work.
