Ashby BID has invested in a new app for businesses to be able to report incidents, issue bans, receive news alerts, view and download guidance or posters and view images of suspects.

Ashby Businesses Against Crime (ABAC) has been announced as a scheme for the business community to share intelligence, report low-level crime and ASB in the day-time and night-time economies.

It is open to all businesses in Ashby and aims to provide a number of important benefits:

• Access to details of local offenders

• Ability to submit Incident and Intelligence data regarding local offenders with the system

• This data helps the police & the councils to re-allocate resources to provide better support in the town

• Ashby Pubwatch operates a banning scheme across all member businesses. Work together to manage the exclusion of offenders from member premises

• Assist with Purple Flag accreditation, thus making the town a safer and more attractive place to visit.  

Ashby BID says there are two separate systems running, one for the daytime economy and another covering night time economy.

This coupled, with the retail radios that also supplied - which are linked to the CCTV control room, is designed to give businesses peace of mind that they have support.

Any business in Ashby who would like to join the system can send in a request to [email protected]
