Business Crime Partnership

Business crime is a criminal offence that is committed against a person or property which is associated with the connection of that person or property to a business.

Welcome to the Wolverhampton BID Business Crime Partnership Scheme.

With over 100 members of the Wolverhampton Business Crime to include Transport Operators, Retailers, Licensed Venue, West Midlands Police and Wolverhampton City Council. There is a need for a united approach in tackling business crime in Wolverhampton City Centre and this initiative has been established as part of the Action Plan of the Wolverhampton BID Business Crime Partnership. This provides assistance to you and your business in the following areas:

  • A collective approach in dealing with persistent and prolific thieves and troublemakers by excluding them from the member shops, stores, licensed premises and businesses.
  • Protects staff from acts or the threat of physical violence and verbal abuse.
  • Reduces the fear of crime in members’ premises, for the benefit of staff, customers and the public.
  • Frees up resources otherwise spent observing and apprehending repeat offenders.
  • Encourages greater economic investment by creating and promoting a safer place to invest and work.
