What is Safer Business Hounslow?
It’s the new name for Hounslow Business Against Crime - an organisation which was established over 10 years ago to create safer communities.
Shoplifting and anti-social behaviour is a challenge for traders and town centres alike. Far from being a victimless crime, shoplifting increases insurance premiums for retailers with costs being passed on to consumers. Business related crime also includes staff harassment, property damage, and vandalism.
Crime Reduction Partnerships have gained popularity because preventing crime is more effective than clearing up after it, and because perceptions of safety directly impact on people wanting to visit their town centre.
“Sharing information is key to the success of crime reduction partnerships. We get results and everyone benefits, including the local community.”
Janet Leatherland, Chair, Safer Business Hounslow
