Winchester Business Improvement District (BID) has successfully renewed its Business Crime Reduction Partnership National Standards Accreditation, which is recognised by the National Business Crime Centre.

The Winchester Business Crime Reduction Partnership (BCRP), which is managed by Winchester BID, has successfully renewed its national accreditation. The accrediting body for the national standards is Police Crime Prevention Initiatives, better known by their brand “Secured by Design”. The National Association of Business Crime Partnerships are the body who provide assessment to this standard.

The accreditation ensures partnerships are operating lawfully, effectively and to the standards set out by the National Business Crime Centre, a unit hosted by the Metropolitan Police Service and overseen by the National Police Chiefs’ Council lead for Business Crime. They are the national stakeholder for these standards.

Jane Bastock, Winchester BCRP Manager was delighted to officially receive the accreditation certificate from Chief Inspector Korine Bishop alongside the Winchester BID Rangers and Winchester Neighbourhood Policing Team.

Maxine Fraser, National Association of Business Crime Partnerships Assessor said: “Winchester BCRP sits within Winchester BID and is an exceptional example of a highly effective partnership approach tackling crime against business. Outstanding procedures and compliance were demonstrated with the evidence submitted as part of the assessment. Partners and investors should feel reassured that Winchester are delivering a highly effective BCRP and the highest quality service to levy payers.”

Paul Spencer, Executive Director of Winchester BID said: “We are very pleased to share the news that we have successfully renewed our National Standards Accreditation. Thank you to Jane Bastock for her excellent leadership of the Winchester Business Crime Reduction Partnership and we are grateful for the support of our partners, particularly local businesses, Hampshire and Isle of Wight Constabulary and the Winchester City Council Neighbourhood Services and Community Safety Team.”
