Joining the NBCS allows your company access to the best business crime insights and intelligence available in the UK

Your membership gives you access to the following benefits:

The Secure and Robust Data Repository

Our data repository is where business crime data is submitted, shared and analysed, and has the following benefits:

  • One central solution. As a national data gathering initiative, we’re perfectly positioned to see the ‘bigger picture’ and identify local, regional and national criminal trends.
  • Anonymity. Upload your data safe in the knowledge that your company will remain anonymous, meaning business-sensitive information is protected.
  • Crime mapping. View at-a-glance where crimes are being reported throughout the country.
  • Dashboards. Get the latest figures and statistics in an easily digestible format.
  • Crime Escalation Feature. Integrated with the Intelligence Hub, use your knowledge to emphasise a particular threat.
  • Lobbying. An important secondary benefit to members, the data gathered through the repository helps give the NBCS an evidence-based position to lobby the Government and police.

The Intelligence Hub

With the data the NBCS receives we then carry out in-depth analysis to produce actionable intelligence for both members and stakeholders.

This provides the following benefits:

  • A single point of contact. The NBCS is the central contact for all partners, giving us a complete viewpoint on matters and further benefiting our members through our actions.
  • Alerts. If we find intelligence that could directly affect your business, we share this with you via instant email alerts.
  • Weekly and monthly reports. These regular round-ups of our work help highlight the effectiveness of what we do and share the success stories that wouldn’t be possible without the continued help of our members.
  • Cross-border crime. By gathering data from all over the country the NBCS is in the perfect place to identify trends in crime that at first glance might appear to be isolated incidents, but are actually part of a larger criminal effort that spans regional borders.
  • Police co-ordination. Any cross-border criminal patterns concerning multiple police services needs managing properly. In such situations the NBCS selects which police services takes the lead based on the intelligence we’ve produced. With 43 independent police services in England & Wales, plus Scotland and Northern Ireland this helps them to communicate to resolve the issue rather than working in isolation.
  • Public-private collaboration. The NBCS provides one of the leading examples of what the public and private sectors can achieve with proper management and oversight.
  • An intelligence-led approach. Everything the NBCS does is backed up by sound evidence, ensuring work is carried out in the smartest possible way.
  • Prevention. Through all of this, the NBCS is an effective collaborative solution that detects and prevents crime involving prolific or persistent offenders.

We also work in partnership with the Cyber Resilience Centre

Businesses are quickly informed about the potential threats they face, through email alerts and online dashboards that map out criminal patterns.


The NBCS helps member businesses work with the police, with our central data platform helping to highlight the full extent and scale of crimes taking place.

When these criminal patterns show signs of serious or organised offending, we then pull all the relevant information together and liaise with the relevant forces to ensure police and other enforcement agencies are aware of the issue and take appropriate action.


The intelligence we gather provides a strong evidence base that shows the impact of business crime. This enables the NBCS to work with the police, enforcement agencies and strategic partners to maximise every opportunity to better prevent, detect and prosecute offenders affecting member businesses.

By providing a solid evidence base on the impact of business crime this also gives us a strong platform to lobby both the Government and the police on behalf of the UK’s business community.
