Safer Business Action Day with City of London Police

Author: City of London Police


The City of London Police is organising Safer Business Action (SaBa) Day on Thursday, 23 March involving a range of operational activity.  The overall aim of the day is to reduce crime against business and also crime which affects business in the City.

There will be vehicle check points with a focus on targeting transient criminality connected with organised crime though the use of ANPR technology.

Two engagement hubs will be set up, one at New Change / Cheapside, the second at Liverpool Street. Officers will engage with the public to raise awareness of crime prevention.  These hubs will be used as a staging point for joint patrols with Security Professionals from local businesses around their sites.

Specialist officers from the Cyber Griffin team will meet with key individuals from business community to provide crime prevention advice and create new opportunities for further training.

Police officers will work with the business community to target prolific offenders and those familiar faces identified by the businesses who persistently disrupt their day to day.

Activity will extend into the Night Time Economy where pro-active patrols will visit licensed premises to give the public crime prevention advice and engage with venue management.  Our key messages here are ensuring security professionals are licensed and spaces around our licensed premises are safe for all.
