Q1. What partner agencies does the BCRP work with?
The Brighton and Hove Business Crime Reduction Partnership (BCRP) works with numerous partner agencies across the city to help reduce crime and anti-social behaviour within our member venues.
These partner agencies include:
- Sussex Police
- Brighton & Hove City Council
- The Community Safety Team
- The Youth Offending Service
- YMCA Downslink Group - Safe Space
Q2. I work for a partner agency in the city. How can the BCRP help me?
The BCRP works with partner agencies to help create a more accurate picture of offending in Brighton & Hove. Only around 27% of incidents reported to the BCRP are called into the police. That leaves a staggeringly high percentage of incidents of crime and disorder that go unnoticed by authorities.
We work with agencies to help individuals who are offending in the city get the help they may need via referrals, this could be ensuring a member of the street community links in with an agency to try to get housing support or support with an addiction or ensuring a young person is linked in with the Youth Offending Service to help address their offending behaviour and needs.
We can share information on crime trends and locations as well as individuals althugh we do the latter under a strict data integiry agreement and in compliance with the Data Protection Act 2018.
