The Athelney Group are proud to work in partnership with National Business Crime Solutions (NBCS).

The NBCS is a not for profit initiative that enables the effective sharing of appropriate data between the police, crime reduction agencies and the business community to reduce crime and risks to all. By gathering data and sharing information across the public and private sectors the NBCS is better able to prevent and detect emerging issues caused by prolific and persistent offenders.

NBCS was formed in 2012 and in 2016 received funding from the Home Office as recognition of the support provided to both businesses and the police in fighting business crime.

The work of NBCS has led to the arrest of over 300 prolific and violent offenders.

However, improving data sharing and developing improved response will result in more prolific offenders being arrested. The SDU provides a safe holing environment for private security to investigate and to conduct a safe managed handover to the police. The SDU will also provide a safe environment for the police to process subjects on the spot leading to a 79% efficiency improvement at not additional cost to the police budget. Everyone’s a winner.

The ATHELNEY GROUP are proud to be preferred partners with the FSOA. The Football Safety Officers Association (FSOA) of England and Wales was formed in 1992 by a small group of Football Safety Officers for Football Safety Officers.

The aim of the Association is to develop and improve all aspects of Stadium Safety including how events are safely managed. However, over the years as Stadium design and facilities for spectators have been improved so has the expectations of the customers (fans) who visit our grounds.  In order to keep pace with these heightened expectations the FSOA has and continues to play a significant part, mainly through the Stewards employed by football Clubs, in improving levels of customer care and quality of service delivery. Attending football matches should be an enjoyable experience irrespective of the match result and Safety Officers through their match day staff will play a significant part in achieving this objective.

To learn more about the FSOA, the services they can deliver and how to contact them for more information about the Association, membership or corporate partnerships.
