Business Crime Reduction Partnerships (BCRPs) perform a valuable function as part of local community efforts to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour which affects businesses, their staff, customers and the community. Their work is now recognised by police, community safety and community safety partnerships as providing a valuable source of information and demonstrating practical steps to identify offenders and anti-social elements and to work together to manage their behaviour more effectively.
The mission of the National Association of Business Crime Partnerships is to reduce acquistive and violent crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour against businesses, their premises, staff and customers.
Business and action plans
The board and partnership council has developed a business plan for the new organisation, supported by an action plan setting out what we want to achieve. Our action plan will be driven by member involvement and will evolve as objectives are achieved and new ones added in what will be a rolling process.

PABCIS was borne out of a desire within Staffordshire to create consistency within local Schemes – delivery of this emanated out of the Stoke on Trent Business Crime Reduction Partnership which JD managed for around 20 years. JD's overall experience of working with BCRPs extends to around 28 years. Prior to that JD was employed within the judicial/legal system. JD sits on various delivery groups within Staffordshire, works very closely with Staffordshire Police, Chairs the Local Crime and Disorder Group, and has been an advisor within the Midlands.
