Business Crime Reduction Partnership

Nottingham BID provides a range of services which are aimed at reducing the impact of crime for its members as part of the accredited Business Crime Reduction Partnership (BCRP).

If you’d like to know more about any of these services please get in touch.


Digital Radio System

Nottingham BID operates the Digital Radio System scheme across the city centre for its members who sign up to use the system. The scheme provides a secure link to the Police, CCTV cameras and the BID’s own City Centre Operations team. This is a valuable tool for sharing information on incidents of crime, anti-social behaviour and potential offenders. There are currently over 120 radio users across the city centre.


Secure Information Sharing

Nottingham BID provides for its members the Database and Intranet for Safer Communities (DISC) system, which is a secure online information sharing system. This is to enable businesses across the city centre to report incidents and view the latest intelligence and exclusion notices in place at a time to suit them.


Exclusion Notice Scheme

To ensure that people have an enjoyable experience when they visit the city of Nottingham, whether it be in the day or the evening, we don’t want them to have to worry about their safety or anti-social behaviour. Nottingham BID operates an Exclusion Notice Scheme, which excludes those who offend in one establishment from visiting all other establishments in the city centre. We believe this sends a strong zero tolerance message for the city of Nottingham.


Best Bar None

Best Bar None (BBN) is a national scheme supported by the Home Office, which is designed to promote the responsible, effective management and operation of licensed premises. Businesses who apply are required to complete an assessment based on essential, desired and bonus criteria. If all aspects of the assessment are met, they are awarded Best Bar None status.

Nottingham BID have run the scheme in Nottingham City Centre for the last eight years. In 2019, a total of 116 Nottingham city centre establishments were awarded the Best Bar None accreditation, which is a record high for the city and the highest number in England.
