BID’s delighted to announce collaboration with Derbyshire Business Crime Reduction Partnership

13/09/2021

Cathedral Quarter and St Peters Quarter BIDs are delighted to announce the launch of a new collaboration with the Derbyshire Business Crime Reduction Partnership (DBCRP), providing levy-paying businesses with access to the county-wide scheme.

The DBCRP is a crime reduction scheme which makes it easier for businesses to work together to reduce crime and ASB.

Key benefits for levy payers include access to the DISC system (more on this below) which gives businesses the ability to share intel, report incidents to the Police via the app, view offender photo galleries, and to receive crime alerts and newsletters.

Introducing DISC

Businesses who sign up to the DBCRP scheme will have access to the ‘DISC’ app, which can be accessed via mobile phones or desktops.

DISC enables businesses to share intel and report ‘low level’ offences direct to the Police via a single easy to use and GDPR-compliant platform.

Helpful DISC Videos
There are a number of short video clips available that you may find useful in understanding the DISC system further. You may find the following videos particularly helpful:

Frequently Asked Questions
How much will joining the Derbyshire Business Crime Reduction Partnership cost me?

Membership to the Derbyshire Business Crime Reduction Partnership will be completely FREE for levy-paying businesses for the first twelve months starting from 1st October when the scheme goes live. Cathedral Quarter BID will be covering the costs of the scheme for at least the first year, thanks in part to grant funding received from the Police & Crime Commissioners (PCC) office. Non-levy payers can also access the scheme but will be liable for the annual membership fee.
