Sussex Business Crime Initiative

The Sussex police have began to pilot a Business Crime Initiative in order to tackle business crime more efficiently. The initiative, which is starting out in Sussex and could grow if successful, aims to bring businesses and police closer together so they can fight business crime a lot quicker.

A dedicated service will be set up, with the aid of an application called ‘Facewatch’, whereby businesses can directly give information to the local warden who will upload any evidence, such as cctv, to the Facewatch app which will feed directly to the police. The hope is that this will make reporting a crime far quicker, and henceforth deterring future crimes.

Perpetuity Research has conducted a wealth of research in to crime against business including shoplifting, robbery, staff dishonesty, and fraud to name but a few. To find out more visit our website.
