Membership of NABCP is open to all business crime reduction partnerships across the United Kingdom.

 The National Association of Business Crime Partnerships (NABCP) is one of only two Assessing Organisations working with the National Business Crime Centre to offer Business Crime Reduction Partnership (BCRP) assessments.

NABCP has a wealth of experience in the Business Crime Partnership world and is the only organisation to exclusively represent BCRP’s. As members of the National Retail Crime Steering Group and in Partnership with the National Business Crime Centre and the National Business Crime Solution we can make a difference and reduce crime and anti-social behaviour in our towns and cities.

With trained, experienced and skilled assessors across the whole of the United Kingdom we can have someone local to you to help you and support you through the new accreditation process.

NABCP provides a national focus for business crime reduction partnerships. This helps to give the work of BCRPs a higher profile through areas such as:

  • Working with businesses and stakeholders, including police and local authorities to support the developement of BCRPs in the United Kingdom. The NABCP partnership model is robust, tested and accepted by police forces as best practice for information-sharing with BCRPs as trusted partners.

  • Accreditation of the new national Standard to ensure partnerships are operating lawfully, effectively and to the standards set out in the NABCP Partnership Codes of Practice and supported by National Police Chiefs Council.

  • Creating and supporting regional and county BCRP groups encouraging a more strategic approach by police to business crime.

  • Providing professional advice to partnership crime managers on all issues relating to partnership management.

  • Providing partnerships with the NABCP newsletter, advice and relevant updates from the Home Office and Ministry of Justice.

  • Representing BCRPs at a national level on the National Retail Crime Steering Group at the Home Office.

  • Working with the NPCC lead on business crime to promote business crime reduction as strategic force policy and working with police forces to help them develop their business crime strategy.

  • Working with retail forums to promote closer and more effective working relationships between partnerships and national retailers.
