Mitie’s security management business division has become a Platinum Associate Member of the National Business Crime Solution (NBCS), the organisation that provides a collaborative approach towards tackling cross-border serious and organised crime. The NBCS enables the sharing of data between law enforcement agencies and the business community in order to reduce crime and risk.
The not-for-profit NBCS facilitates an important central repository whereby business crime data can be submitted, shared and analysed. This intelligence is then used to detect and respond to crimes affecting the UK’s business community in a bid to enhance safety levels for the general public.
Mitie’s security management business works with customers from a range of industries including the top two retailers in the UK. Through close collaboration with the NBCS and an evidence-based approach, the partnership will help the company gain further insight into criminal trends and provide a safer environment for customers and staff.
Jason Towse, managing director of Mitie’s security management business, explained: “This partnership with the NBCS affords a great opportunity for us to help facilitate collaboration between businesses, industry and law enforcement agencies and offers our clients forward-thinking security. By way of this innovative new partnership model, we very much look forward to working together and helping to reduce crime and risk for UK businesses.”
Daniel Hardy, managing director of the NBCS, added: “We’re tremendously honoured that Mitie, which is one of the largest security companies in the UK, has chosen to work with the NBCS in a member-based approach towards business crime management.”
