26 May DISC launches in East Grinstead!
The app, funded by Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner (PCC) Katy Bourne is being offered to businesses free of charge. It is a secure, online information-sharing system that allows retailers who are signed up, to share news, information and intelligence, including images and the times offenders were last seen.
Cllr Whittaker Chair of the East Grinstead Town Council Public Services Committee said: “This initiative is welcomed by the Town Council and businesses as a tool to help with the fight against retail crime. Retail crime, especially for small businesses does have victims and we hope this app will encourage reporting, resourcing, and stamping it out in our area”.
A Mid Sussex District Council spokesperson said: “This is an excellent tool for local businesses to report incidents of anti-social behaviour and crime in real time and share relevant information securely with Sussex Police and neighbouring businesses.”
