Introduction Webinar

What is DISC?

DISC is a secure platform that businesses can use to report incidents, view offender galleries and share intelligence. 

Members can also send real-time push alerts and receive updates via the system newsletter. 

By working together and sharing information, businesses can have a real impact on crime, and the BID can assist in identifying trends and persistent offenders. 

Who are National Business Crime Solutions?

National Business Crime Solutions is a not-for-profit company that work with Business Crime Reduction Partnerships, BID’s and businesses to support crime reduction through access to their intelligence hub, trend meetings and more. 

Working in Partnership

Speaking about the scheme, Chief Inspector Andy Edwards said “Dorset Police are pleased to be working even more closely with We Are Weymouth and the wider membership of the Weymouth BID.

The new initiative and technology will involve the use of a dedicated communications platform, which will accelerate the speed at which information can be shared by local policing teams with other authorised DISC users, partners and stakeholders.

This increased connectivity with our existing partnerships will help us work together to provide a safe county for everyone.”

We continue to work with a number of partners to tackle crime and safety in Weymouth
