A new Business Watch scheme has been launched on Brackmills – all part of the estate’s commitment to cracking down on crime and anti-social behaviour.

The scheme, set up by Brackmills Business Improvement District (BID) in partnership with Northamptonshire Police, Action Fraud and Neighbourhood Watch, will play a key role in the BID’s continued efforts to nurture a safe and crime-free environment.

Joining is free, with members set to receive messages, alerts, appeals and crime prevention advice from the BID and other partners.

The scheme has been designed to:

  • Promote a safe and crime-free environment for businesses
  • Equip businesses with the information and tools they need to combat fraud and cyber crime
  • Create links with the local policing team and the estate’s dedicated Police Community Support Officer (PCSO)
  • Bring local businesses together to prevent and solve crime
  • Raise awareness of local crime, its impact on businesses and how to tackle it
  • Encourage the sharing of information

The Brackmills Business Watch scheme will be run via the Northamptonshire Neighbourhood Alert system, a messaging service run by Northamptonshire Police. The platform allows frontline police officers to send alert messages direct from their mobile devices to local people and businesses.

To join Brackmills staff and employers are asked to simply contact the BID’s designated PCSO Paul Hurst. Simply do this by emailing [email protected]. Include your name, email address, business name and business postcode.
