Businesses called to join in Scots crime impact survey

Have your say

BUSINESSES in Edinburgh are being urged to take part in a survey designed to measure the true impact of crime on Scottish firms.

The survey is the first of its kind and will help Scottish Government, police, fire and the Scottish Business ­Resilience Centre gather vital intelligence about the extent of crime affecting Scotland’s businesses.

It has been launched by the Scottish Business Resilience Centre itself (SBRC), whose remit is “Create a Secure Scotland for Business To Flourish In”. The Scottish Business Crime Survey 2013 will ask thousands of businesses to recount their own experiences, from vandalism to card fraud.

It caters for a range of ­business sectors regardless of size or location.

Sean Davidson, business analyst for the Scottish Business Resilience Centre, said: “This survey will provide a massive boost in the fight against business crime.”
