Welcome to the Every Crime, Every Time campaign which encourages businesses to do just that; report all crime, every time to the police.
Crime against business makes up a significant 20% or the 'forgotten fifth' of all recorded crime. Worringly, 40% of businesses do not report crime because of a lack of faith in the criminal justice system. Crime against business has an impact on business productivity, staff morale and the communities they support.
Businesses are reluctant to report incidents to the police because they feel that the police are not interested' or that they ‘have no confidence that offenders will be prosecuted if caught'.
You can do something about it. Report it!
Help to protect your business by reporting Every Crime, Every Time. We encourage you to report crime to the police in the usual way, in the first instance. Alternatively, you can complete the online incident report form and/or log book below. The information you give will be used to inform strategies on tackling crime at a local level as well as influence policy at a regional and national level.
The following documents are available to download:
