PCC hosts annual Business Summit
Police and Crime Commissioner, David Jamieson hosted his annual
Business Summit on 18th January 2018. The event focussed
around tackling business crime and helping businesses.
West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner, David Jamieson
said: "The progress that we have made in the past year with regards
to business crime makes this year's summit the biggest we have ever
held. We now have the Strategic Business Crime Partnership up and
running which has been instrumental in engaging local, West
Midlands businesses with the police.
"It was great to see so many businesspeople at the summit.
People were able to be informed on crime prevention measures and
meet other businesses."
The agenda this year will include topics such as removing modern
slavery from the supply chain and what the police are doing to
tackle the rise in vehicle crime.
Waheed Saleem, co-chair of the Strategic Business Crime
Partnership and the Police and Crime Commissioner's Strategic
Policing Crime Board, said: "Business crime affects us all and can
have a significant impact on the economic well-being of the region,
therefore it is important that businesses can work with the police
to prevent and tackle business crime together, to protect jobs and
encourage investment in the region.
"The Business Summit is an excellent way for businesses to not
only engage with the work that the police are doing strategically,
but also to network and share their expertise with others."
