Debbie Weston, community safety advisor for Cambridgeshire Police,
said: "We're hoping lots of businesses will get on board with the
scheme and help us to help them in tackling crime.
"It's an excellent opportunity for us all to work in partnership
and empowers companies to take a united stand against crime.
"Business Against Crime is a crime reduction initiative
specifically designed to meet the needs of the business community. It
provides a structure for businesses to work together with the common
objective of fighting crime.
"Companies which have signed up to the scheme in other parts of
the county have found they've got to know their neighbours, which in
many cases has led to shared safety resources."
A recent survey of the British Chamber of Commerce revealed the cost
of business crime nationally is almost £19 billion a year.
Everyone who signs up is provided with a Business Watch folder.
