Business Crime Reduction

Manchester’s Business Crime Reduction Partnership (BCRP) helps to create a safe and secure city for customers, staff and visitors by reporting and tackling crime.

We support the work of Greater Manchester Police, Manchester and Salford Council Licensing Units and Anti-Social Behaviour teams to run a city centre Civil Exclusion Scheme. Thousands of incidents are recorded, persons identified and exclusion notices issued.

BCRP members can access StoreNet/NiteNet security radios and real-time intelligence via a secure online portal (DISC) to see data on offenders.

We also deliver venue security training on Crime Prevention and Conflict Avoidance, Fraud Prevention, Counterfeit Currency and Making Statements and Reporting.

Our BCRP team 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 the outstanding partnership work.
