Policies & Issues

RETAIL CRIME
The Heads of Security Policy Action Group (PAG) provides members with a forum to raise areas of concern and to share best practice solutions on effectively tackling these issues. It is responsible for the BRC's strategic engagement with government, law enforcement agencies and other key stakeholders on crime and security related issues.

The current areas of concern are:
- Crime Partnership and Engagement
- E-crime/Fraud
- Counter Terrorism
- Violence against staff, including Cash and Valuables In Transit crews *

Recent successes have involved working closely with the Security Industry Authority (SIA) to ensure that there would be no obligatory licensing of in-house guards and with UK Payments to significantly reduce an emerging crime trend involving compromised Pin Entry Devices. The BRC's CVIT Working Group recently published Best Practice Guidelines for Retailers on effective measures that retailers can take to help reduce the level of attacks on CVIT crews. This has been widely accepted by the retail sector and is being adapted for use in other sectors.

*Cash and Valuables in Transit (CVIT) companies are involved in transporting, storing and sorting cash and other valuables, typically for retail and financial organisations. They play a vital role in replenishing and protecting cash supplies for the business world and the wider community, keeping the economy running.
