business crime logoNews from the Police and Crime Commissioner for Wiltshire and Swindon, Angus Macpherson, who launched a major consultation about crime with business men and women in June.

Mr Macpherson is urging people, whether they run small, medium or large concerns, to fill in a survey on his website and register for a business crime forum in September.

The survey is designed to help the Commissioner to understand the extent, nature and impact of crime and anti-social behaviour faced by the business community.

The results will be presented at a free half-day business crime forum which Mr Macpherson is staging at the Corn Exchange in Devizes on Friday 6 September.

The deadline for completing the survey is midnight on Sunday 14 July. For details go to www.wiltshire-pcc.gov.uk

If you are involved in the business world of Swindon and Wiltshire please help by completing the survey here.
