As part of Safer Business Week, Durham Police and Crime Commissioners’ Office have launched a survey to gather opinions and experiences of retail crime across County Durham and Darlington and are seeking your help in engaging with local businesses and business networks.

The Durham Police and Crime Commissioners’ Office would like to gain an understanding from retail workers, business owners and managers on their experiences of crime over the last year and the use of the SenstrySIS system currently being used by Durham Constabulary. The experiences of these groups are extremely important in order to shape plans going forward to tackle business and retail crime and create a safer, stronger community for our residents.

Please see the link below for the survey:

The more businesses they engage with give a well-rounded perspective of the crimes workers across this sector experience on a daily basis, along with how best a targeted response can be provided.

The survey closes at 5 pm on 15th November.

If you would like to discuss this further or have any queries, please contact Charlotte Pickering at Police and Crime Commissioners’ Office , Email:
