Crime Prevention & Business Support

We provide financial support to the city centre Rangers, Night Marshals, Vulnerability Marshals and additional Police Officers.

We host and fund Swansea Against Business Crime partnership (SABC) that has clear objectives to reduce the impact of crime against businesses and their staff. SABC is accredited by the National Business Crime Reduction Partnership (NABCP) complementing our membership of Wales Against Business Crime (WABC) which we are already accredited by.
