Why the Partnership 

There is no doubt that all agencies involved in the prevention & solving of anti-social behaviour (ASB) & crime are experiencing significant resource pressures at a time when the level of negative activity faced by businesses is rising.

Running any kind of business currently is challenging enough without having to deal with rising levels of theft, verbal & physical abuse and ASB etc. However, we also see low levels of actual reporting to the agencies that have a statutory responsibility to deal with this activity – often because of time pressures of reporting, complex & non-user friendly methods, or a perceived lack of response or enforcement.

Thus the creation of the conurbation wide ‘Against Business Crime’ driven & funded by the three Business Improvement Districts in Poole and Bournemouth addresses.

Full support

Having the full buy in & support from the Police, local authority & the Police Crime Commissioner.

Easier reporting

Making it easier & quicker to report ASB & crime.

Business support

Safety & security, across all of the BID areas is one of the
top-rated issues in terms of concern – so that’s why the BIDs
have come together – to address that concern & to support our businesses with positive & practical action
