Useful websites and crime prevention advice

The Safer Hampshire Business Partnership has worked together with Hampshire Constabulary, the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, and other partners to create a series of guides designed to help businesses in supporting their managers and employees in dealing with abuse, violence and hate crime in the workplace.

Business Crime Survey 2017

In 2017 the Police and Crime Commissioner’s office in partnership with the Safer Hampshire Business Partnership ran a Business Crime Survey, providing the business community of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight with the opportunity to share its views on crime and disorder. We have based this consultation on a national approach combined with previous surveys run by the PCC, in order to reflect on anything that may have changed for the business community.
