October and November saw a record 15 new customers sign up to Disc. Among them: another police force has chosen Disc to support its rural crime reduction work; one of the UK’s top-10 security companies; an ‘industrial’ BID using Disc to reduce crime and ASB for its levy payers…

In the North East, Cramlington in Northumberland has invested in Disc to address night-time crime and ASB, with the support of Northumbria Police; the Yorkshire Coast BID – representing retailers and the hospitality industry from the Humber to the Cleveland Hills – has implemented Disc to support its levy payers.

To the west we welcome Lancaster BID, bringing the number of Disc systems in Lancashire to six. Meanwhile in the Midlands Kidderminster becomes the 16th Disc system in the West Mercia policing area.

The the south, Wimborne BID in Dorset has chosen to implement Disc, while a further Disc implementation in Cornwall brings the total number of Disc systems in that county to four. Bracknell BID, an ‘industrial’ BID supporting commercial and industrial businesses to the south and west of the Berkshire town, becomes the third industrial BID to implement Disc.

In London, Sidcup, Penge and Bexleyheath BIDs bring the number of Disc systems in the Metropolitan Police area to 31. Elsewhere in the South East, Slough BID in Berkshire has invested in Disc, becoming the 17th Disc system in the Thames Valley policing area; in Kent, Ashford Partnership Against Crime becomes the fourth Disc implementation in the county.

We’re also delighted that another police force has chosen Disc to support its rural crime reduction activity. More and more forces are looking to harness the power of Disc to help drive down countryside crime, showing that Disc is just as effective in supporting rural communities as it is in helping reduce low-level crime and ASB in towns and city-centres.

And finally, another of the UK’s top-10 security companies has chosen Disc to help it support its customers. It’s the third of the UK security industry’s top-10 companies to choose Disc.
