Advice packs are issued to businesses

Banbridge Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP) is working with the PSNI Crime Prevention Officer to ensure that local businesses have the right advice to help them reduce and prevent crime during the festive season and beyond by providing a free crime prevention advice and information pack.

The packs will be sent out to all Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) on Banbridge District Council database.

PCSP Vice-Chair Mr Jonathan Murphy, said, “The packs contain practical advice about preventing and reducing opportunities for crime to your business and to your staff including a new PSNI leaflet on advice for retailers regarding shoplifting, how to avoid problems with payment cards and counterfeit currency.

“This is one of several initiatives being delivered by Banbridge PCSP to reduce business and retail crime through targeted projects. These packs will provide our local SMEs with practical ways to reduce crime.

“If you own or manage an SME and do not receive a business crime prevention advice pack by December 20 please contact the Banbridge PCSP staffing team on 4062 0248.”
