PCC Clare Moody attended her first Business Crime Forum

The Business Crime Forum ensures there is an open dialogue between Avon and Somerset Police, business crime reduction partnerships, and business groups to help reduce crime against local businesses.

The aims of the business crime forum are to listen to the business community to help develop business crime strategies within the police force, as well as share best practice and intelligence amongst everyone that attends.

Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Clare Moody went along to be able to receive input and develop more knowledge around this important area. The chance to be heard and develop plans to reduce business crime is a priority for business owners.
