Business Crime Matters

The total price tag of burglary, shoplifting, robbery, criminal damage, theft and other offences against businesses in Staffordshire is estimated at over £7,300 per hour. Fraud alone costs companies £9.1 billion nationally a year. And, worryingly, according to the Federation of Small Businesses, over a third (39 per cent) of businesses do not report crime to police. A strategy to tackle business crime has been commissioned by Mr Ellis, spearheaded by his deputy Sue Arnold, herself a former president of Southern Staffordshire Chamber of Commerce.
