We want to help you increase your profitability by reducing crime and create better security for your staff and customers.
You may have already seen our new BAC window stickers popping up around the city. You too can get involved. Working together, we can make a difference.
How we can help you
Our aim is to create a safe and secure city for customers, staff and visitors. To enable this to happen, we work closely with Wiltshire Police, CCTV, Salisbury City Council and PubWatch, developing ways to train staff, improve awareness and response to crime related issues.
By becoming involved in Salisbury BID’s BAC initiative, you will be able to take advantage of:
Co-ordinated from Salisbury's CCTV control room, City Radio helps reduce crime and keep you, your staff, customers and other businesses safe. Delivery and full radio training is provided by Salisbury BID, plus you will receive:
• Instant information sharing
• Security intelligence
• Panic alarm facility (important for lone workers)
• City CCTV, security and police contact*
There is a one off cost for the radio, with a one week free trial available on request.
ShopWatch DISC System
The secure intranet system gives you all the information you need to identify and report known offenders and gives you up-to-date city wide and national intelligence. Also included are:
• Current offender images
• Easy to use report function
• Instant security alerts
• Monthly business crime intelligence meetings
• Training information and business crime updates
• Available on smart phones
ShopWatch is free to all levy payers.
Our crime reduction initiatives really do work
Michael Pitcairn, the Manager of Sainsburys Salisbury, said: “Since Joining ShopWatch we have noticed the results in our yearly shrink report. We can see who to watch out for as well as feedback on new shoplifters that aren’t on the system. The radios are easy to use and having CCTV, the BID ranger and Venture security on them means we can get valuable intel and communicate any issues we have. Regular monthly meetings allow us to pass on any concerns and receive important updates on what is happening in Salisbury."
If you are already a member of ShopWatch, we are glad to announce that we will finally be meeting in person once again! It’s been over two years but our next gathering will be held at the Guildhall, 10am on Tuesday March 15th. Andrew Sharman from the South West Business Crime Centre will give a talk on loss prevention training, and there will also be updates from the police, Salisbury City Council, shop/business attendees and the Salisbury BID.
