Business Crime Reduction Partnerships: A report for the National Business Crime Centre

Taylor, E. ORCID: 0000-0003-2664-2194 (2022). Business Crime Reduction Partnerships: A report for the National Business Crime Centre. London, UK: National Business Crime Centre.


Business Crime Reduction Partnerships (BCRPs) play an important role in protecting businesses and their employees. There are over 250 BCRPs operating in the UK working with local and national partners to prevent and reduce crime impacting on their local communities. The work they do is invaluable.

In 2019, National Accreditation Standards were introduced to recognise this and raise the standards to support their members. This review, commissioned by the National Business Crime Centre, provides an opportunity to understand the standards and assess how they are perceived by businesses, BCRPs, Business Improvement Districts and statutory partners.

The review also seeks to identify opportunities to recognise and include other business crime reduction initiatives to support our communities and further enhance the effectiveness of partnership crime prevention initiatives across the country.

Thank you to all those who took the time to complete the survey and share your views. We appreciate all your feedback. The NBCC is fully committed to the national standards and will work with partners to review the recommendations to ensure the standards are fit for the challenges ahead.
