Working in partnership to address business crime

Successful businesses are the lifeblood of a successful local economy, helping to generate jobs and prosperity.

Businesses have had an incredibly difficult time during the COVID-19 pandemic as the usual challenges they face are exacerbated. They need support to recover and if elected I will work with the Chief Constable to assign additional resource to tackling shoplifting and assaults on staff, and to continue existing initiatives to engage and support local businesses such as the Avon and Somerset Business Crime Forum and the various Business Improvement Districts and Business Crime Reduction Partnerships that already operate across the area.
