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 offer expert training, provide access to day/night radio links and share real-time intelligence.

We support the work of Greater Manchester Police and Manchester and Salford Council Licensing Units and Anti-Social Behaviour teams to run an offender management system – with thousands of incidents recorded, persons identified and exclusion notices issued.

The BCRP also delivers venue training on reducing loss from theft, credit card fraud, counterfeit currency and conflict management.

Our Business Crime Reduction 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.
