Essex Business Crime Strategic Board

Essex Business Crime Strategic Board

No one group can tackle crimes against businesses on its own. That is why the Essex Chambers of Commerce came together with Essex Police and the Essex Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner to form the Essex Business Crime Strategic Board. Here, the business community and police work together for the benefit of all Essex businesses.
