South Bank Business Watch brings together the heads of security from the major businesses in the neighbourhood to collectively combat crime.
The group pools intelligence gathered by the metropolitan Police and its members allowing a better-informed response to security threats that makes best use of available resources. This allows collective action in response to security threats affecting the area that the group focuses on, the community security zone.
The police provides the group with weekly updates and mapping of crimes in the area and, where possible, also shares details of where police resources will be provided. We provide the secretariat the group needs to undertake its work for the good of South Bank as a whole.
