Crime and Community Impact Profile

At b4Secure we have years of experience in producing intelligence-led profiles of specific crime types and security issues that impact upon local communities. We analyse a range of information sources in order to develop a profile which explores all potential crime, disorder and cultural impacts of a specific public/private space or project such as a construction site or major event. This assists clients in identifying priority threats/risk and the community impact based on variables such as workforce, resources, commodities in use, community demographic, and staff awareness. The completed profile will incorporate analytical products including trends, series and patterns and bespoke recommendations in order to minimise crime and security threats, reduce security costs and enhance stakeholder reputation. This all assists in ensuring our client’s business is delivered in line with local community values.
