We are proud to announce that Disc has been selected by Keighley Business Improvement District (BID) in an effort to help reduce low-level crime and anti-social behaviour. The online crime reporting system will deliver not only greater value to their levy-payers, but also marks great progress in working towards their aims of delivering improvements to their commercial district.
Disc is a unique crime information-sharing system that’s helping drive down low-level crime and antisocial behaviour (ASB) in more than 450 towns and cities across the UK. It empowers communities to ‘self-manage’ low-level crime and ASB, and enables police to work with them to deliver a new kind of effective, joined-up community policing. Each Disc implementation can link together into flexible networks to exchange crime and offender information locally, regionally or nationally.
Keighley BID join Bradford, Huddersfield and Wakefield, becoming the fourth Disc system in the West Yorkshire police area, and are the 68th BID to have adopted Disc across the country. This now brings the total of Disc implementations across the UK to 178, meaning that Disc now covers over 450 towns and city-centres throughout the country.
With Keighley BID expected to be up and running with Disc imminently, they’ll shortly be able to link up with other Disc systems across the North of England to instantly share alerts and help identify travelling offenders.
Chief Executive Charlie Newman says “Big thanks to Paul Howard, CEO at Keighley BID, for the vision and the confidence he has shown in Disc. I know this is the beginning of a great working relationship”.
