Ex-BRC crime manager joins NBCS

by Brian Sims

Catherine Bowen has been appointed as Policy and Stakeholder Director for the retail strand of the National Business Crime Solution (NBCS). She will be responsible for raising the profile of the NBCS with key retail stakeholders across the law enforcement community, as well as highlighting the benefits of membership to the wider business community. The NBCS helps businesses tackle crime through centralised and collective data sharing. Employing police analysts, using the wealth of intelligence including CCTV and ANPR held by businesses, and linking with law enforcement agencies such as GAIN (Government Agency Intelligence Network), a direct feed of business intelligence is fed to the police via the National Business Crime Intelligence Bureau. With a background in law enforcement and having spent the last six years working at the British Retail Consortium, Bowen has worked with a range of retail outlets from small independent stores to large multiples. Drawing on business crime issues raised by these retailers, she has petitioned the Government and the senior law enforcement community to establish a strategy for tackling business crime. Bowen stated, ‘The National Business Crime Solution is the most effective option for businesses wanting to take measures against retail crime. I have built my career around advising on business crime and I look forward to helping expand the reach of the NBCS with the ultimate objective of driving down business crime.’
