Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens to host first Business Crime Forum following initial 'meet and greets'
CCTV and cyber-crime are just two of the agenda items to be discussed at Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Sue Mountstevens first Business Crime Forum on Wednesday, September 18, 2013.
The Forum, which will take place at Leigh Court, North Somerset, will be attended by Chief Constable Nick Gargan as well as business representatives from across Avon and Somerset.
The Commissioner announced the initiative for a Business Crime Forum in her inauguration speech to address business crime and help offenders.
Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens said: “I have found that businesses have a real desire to engage with the police and share best practice where appropriate in a bid to tackle commercial crime.
“Local businesses and retailers are key to our economy and are a really important voice in our community. I want businesses to feel supported and I feel that having a Business Crime Forum is a perfect platform for this.”
The Forum will begin with introductions from the Commissioner and Chief Constable where they will introduce their aims and approaches to fighting business crime supported by an overview of business crime statistics.
This will be followed by presentations on cyber-crime ‘getting safe online’ and CCTV best practice before inviting attendees to take part in an open discussion question and answer session.
