How does it work?

If you are a levy paying business owner in either the Poole, Bournemouth Town Centre or Bournemouth Coastal BID areas you can join ‘Against Business Crime’ free of charge as part of your membership of the BID.

In addition to full access to the Sentry App and all of the benefit that will bring, each BID levy paying business will have the services of a Business Crime Liaison Officer (BCLO) on hand to help with the signing up process, training and to discuss and help with any concerns that you have about business crime in your area, and if necessary to help with compiling a Crime Report for Dorset Police in the unfortunate event that this is necessary.

If you are not a levy paying business located in Bournemouth or Poole, you can join ‘Against Business Crime’ via UKPAC for a fee of £20.00 per month to enable full access to the Sentry App. 


If your business is located in Christchurch, whether or not you are a BID levy paying business, you can join ‘Against Business Crime’ via UKPAC for a fee of £20.00 per month to enable full access to the Sentry App. 

NB: If you have more than one business premises across BCP, then each location will be required to sign up separately in accordance with the above.
