PABCIS is an innovative concept in the world of business crime and is at the forefront of the fight against crime and disorder affecting retail and night time economy businesses in our town and city centres throughout Staffordshire. PABCIS was launched some years ago with the objective of bringing about a corporate, consistent and strategic approach in managing crime affecting businesses. It has continued to deliver a corporate and consistent approach right across the county whilst maintaining its local focus.
Local Partnerships are precisely that. They are led by business for the benefit of business with support of relevant agencies. Each local area has a local focus managing local crime affecting business in the local retail and night time economies, with local membership, and effectively helping to manage local issues. The day to day management of each local partnership is by a Business Crime Partnership Manager under the control of PABCIS through its Manager and Management Board supported by a Steering Group. Each local partnership is ultimately governed through the consistent/corporate/strategic approach of PABCIS while maintaining local identity.
Members are able to report individuals to the scheme who are acting in an anti-social manner, or whose behaviour has a negative effect on the trading environment. Exclusions and warnings are considered and sent by the PABCIS HUB.
The Local Business Crime Reduction Partnership Manager will be on hand to offer support to businesses on all aspects of business crime. This includes managing the exclusion scheme and warning letters; acting as a liaison between business and the Police, delivering briefings and overseeing any initiatives and campaigns.
Most of the local areas operates a scheme which encompasses retail and night time economy radio links. Each scheme provides a real-time link to other radio users including local businesses, CCTV and when available local Police Officers and PCSO’s
Helping you protect your business from local, county, regional or national offenders.
