Lodge Service has joined the NBCS – the National Business Crime Solution is a not-for-profit organisation that collaborates with police and the business community to combat business crime in the United Kingdom.
In a published NBCS article, Lodge Group Strategy Director Darren Conway said:
“The Loss Prevention world is changing, so our services have developed in order to match the needs of retailers and other organisations. We can now offer LP teams a fast and reliable on-demand service, whether for store detectives or uniformed officers – as well as on-site security audits and test purchasing, to increase the capabilities of NBCS members and others.
“Away from the frontline Loss Prevention services, we are now delivering full technical security and fire solutions, from data mining and rapid deployment CCTV, through to virtual officers with remote intervention.”
NBCS gathers data and shares information across the public and private sectors to enable the UK security and business community to prevent and detect emerging issues of criminality caused by prolific and persistent offenders.
Since the network started operating in 2012, its work has led to many hundreds of convictions, decades of sentences handed down and the breaking up of organised criminal gangs that have represented a major drain on business profitability.
In 2016 the NBCS received funding from the Home Office, as further recognition of the support it gives both businesses and the police in preventing business crime.
Through close collaboration and an evidence-based approach, NBCS has supported many businesses in reducing their exposure to crime whilst also providing a safer environment for their customers, staff and the general public.
