As the NBCS Connect network grows, Blackburn Businesses Against Crime and Blackburn Business Improvement District are the newest organisations to join our nationwide fight against business crime.

At a time when businesses are beginning to feel a glimpse of normality and customers are coming in high numbers to spend, we would be naive if we thought offenders were remaining at home. We have already seen a sharp increase in crime from prolific offenders and organised crime groups impacting on local areas. Blackburn is no exception.

Blackburn Businesses Against Crime (BBAC) and Blackburn BID work amazingly well together in partnership to combat crime in their area and support members. They enjoy a great relationship with Lancashire Police and the local authority and have done much to promote the awareness of BIDs and BCRPs nationally through sessions with national retailers and NBCS.

Joining the NBCS Connect networks gives an added level of support and improved intelligence access for the partnership and their members. We very much look forward to the input from Blackburn in relation to information sharing and strategic contribution.

On behalf of the network, welcome!
