Business Crime Group for Marble Arch

Join us for the first Marble Arch Business Crime Group on Thursday 15 November, from 10am to 11.30am, at the Marriott Marble Arch, 143 George Street (W1H 5DN).

Owners and managers of pubs, restaurants and shops are invited to hear from Safer West End, Westminster Council’s Integrated Street Engagement Unit and the Metropolitan Police. Members of the Marble Arch Street Team will also be present, so if you haven’t been able to meet them yet, now is your chance.

Businesses selling food have told us that they are particularly vulnerable to organised begging and this meeting will give you and your staff the tools to deal with certain groups of beggars harassing customers as they sit outside, enter or leave your premises.

Businesses with concerns about shop-lifting, aggressive begging or rough sleeping outside your premises will receive tips on how to support vulnerable people and groups, and how to record and report incidents.

To register your attendance or for further information please email Mike in the BID team.
