We are SWBCC

Safety and security are increasingly becoing one of the biggest challenges for businesses and the communities they serve in the South West region, covering Avon & Somerset; Devon & Cornwall; Dorset; Gloucestershire; and Wiltshire.

The South West Business Crime Centre (SWBCC) was founded to assist these communities in the reducing the negative impacts of business crime.

Business crime impacts us all.

Business Crime is a complex problem that incorporates traditional crime types such as theft and burglary which continue to escalate along with new threats from cyber criminals and sophisticated fraud schemes. It can not be solved in isolation and requires partnership working between businesses; police services; and the wider community.

At the very core of any effective partnership is the need for robust, targeted intelligence sharing coupled with practical advice and security guidance.

SWBCC recognises these challenges and knows that within the region, the strength and success of these partnerships vary greatly. The risks of a non-compliant scheme or a scheme that is inefficient in it’s work are becoming a source of great strength to the criminal element. 

We explore these wider issues affecting business crime types; partnerships; responses and much more in greater detail at our blog Business Crime Matters, which you can find here: https://businesscrimematters.wordpress.com

Excellence earned through experience.

With a decade’s worth of leadership in the business crime reduction world, we have seen the threats evolve along with increased pressures on resources for all concerned to tackle it robustly.

During this time, we have helped to create new partnerships; support existing schemes; learn from mistakes; develop effective initiatives; and helped to develop standards to protect businesses and communities. This experience has placed us in the unique position to advise and support.

It is time to begin the fight back against business crime and that is why the SWBCC has been created as a social enterprise to lead the battle for businesses and the wider community.
