What do I get as a member?
The Crawley and Gatwick Business Watch (CGBW) represents both day-time and night-time economies and we will support your business by giving you the tools (CGBW Radios and Apps) you need to help prevent crime and disorder in and around your business.
Using intelligence gathered from members and the police, the BCRP also refers offenders to partner agencies to address their offending behaviour and reduce the chances of re-offending.
How do I get access to offender intelligence?
The CGBW has an Data Sharing Agreement (DSA) with Sussex Police allowing us to obtain certain images of individuals whose offending has led them to being excluded by the CGBW or those who are in danger of exclusion. These images are shared with members solely for the prevention and detection of crime and disorder and strict protocols are followed when sharing such images. You have to be a member of the CGBW before any access is provided and agree to data sharing protocols.
Can I Report incidents to CGBW?
You can report incidents to the CGBW using the DISC system. When you submit your report an email summary will be sent directly to the CGBW team to review.
You will also have the ability to send your report directly to Sussex Police. A summary of your report, including any CCTV images, will be sent direct to the contact centre at Sussex Police. You will be sent a copy of the report and the contact centre will be in touch within 24 hours to give you a crime reference number and an update on the case.
Any serious incidents should always be called into the Police on 999.
How to join the CGBW ?
You can apply for membership online using the membership links on the home page.
How can I pay ?
We encourage full payment on joining the scheme. Once the payment has been processed and GDPR checks are completed access to the DISC intelligence system will be generated.
We prefer members to pay by direct debit. We can also arrange for BACS or card payments. If a member wishes to have access to scheme radio a yearly subscription can be arranged.
