Workington Safe and Sound 24/7 has achieved the national standard for management of business crime reduction partnerships and presented with The Safer Business Award.
The Partnership incorporates both daytime and night time economies and includes the Shop watch and Pub Watch schemes. To achieve the National Standard Workington Safe and Sound 24/7 had to demonstrate how the partner agencies work together to make Workington Town Centre a safe place for all who use.
Police Inspector Craig Lory said “Partnership working to tackle crime and disorder in West Cumbria is very strong. It is great that Workington Safe and Sound 24/7 is able to receive national recognition for the way all the businesses, the Police and Allerdale Borough Council work together to make Workington Town Centre a safe place to do business, shop and socialise. Credit must go to Tony McMullen the Business Crime manager who submitted the application on behalf of the partnership.”
The award was presented by Michael Schuck, Chief Executive of Association of Business Crime Partnerships (ABCP) on Wednesday 4th July 2012 at Workington.
Mike Schuck, Operations Director of ABCP said, ‘I am delighted that Workington Safe & Sound 24/7 has again achieved the Safer Business Award accreditation standard. Tony McMullen, the partnership crime manager, has worked hard to ensure the partnership helps to protect local retailers and other businesses in the town, and in these times of economic uncertainty and reductions in public sector resources, it is even more necessary for businesses to support this excellent example of business community-led crime reduction.’”
The Plaque, which was part of the presentation, will be put up as soon as possible at the Hub in Workington Town Centre.
