The nights are drawing in, the temperature has dropped and the busy festive season is beginning to get well under way.
Over December both the day time and night-time economies get extremely busy with Christmas shoppers and the office parties. It's also a busy time for those people who have a slightly more sinister activity in mind.
During the busy season it can be hard to keep up with the extra workload however, it's important to maintain high standards where crime and disorder are concerned. And that's where we're here to help.
On Friday we launched our twitter campaign #24daysofBCRPtips. The idea behind this is to give businesses quick little tips and reminders of how to ensure the safety of their premises and their staff over the busy festive season and beyond.
If you have a twitter account head over to our page (@BCRP_Brighton) for 24 of our best tips on how you can help prevent crime and anti-social behaviour.
