Business Crime Prevention Forums

If you're worried about crime, the City of Sydney and NSW Police host a series of forums each year to help business owners protect their livelihoods.

Each forum aims to inform business operators and employees about:

  • preventing shoplifting, fraud, robbery, assault, break and enter, internal fraud and credit-card crime
  • designing safer workplaces
  • crime prevention strategies
  • minimising common risks
  • understanding your rights.

You can also download below a useful resource we have put together to help you get the facts on business security.

All forums are free and run for approximately 90 minutes. Dates for future business crime prevention information forums are yet to be announced.
