A free event held by Dorset’s Police and Crime Commissioner to help local businesses guard against criminals has been hailed a success.

The second annual 'Putting Crime Out Of Business' Conference allowed the police to hear companies concerns and help them find new solutions to the problems they're facing.

The event covered topics like Cyber Crime, Counterfeit Goods and Business Scams,

Dorset PCC Martyn Underhill said: "The event was a great success. It gave us an important opportunity to meet with businesses from across Dorset, listen to their concerns and work with them to develop solutions to some of the issues they face."

Alongside the Dorset OPCC, there were also stalls from other organisations giving businesses information and advice on topics such as domestic abuse, online safety and counterfeit goods.

Neil Eames, Development Manager for the FSB Wessex Region, said: "We are delighted to have worked with the Police and Crime Commissioner Martyn Underhill in maintaining a focus on crimes against business. It is a significant issue and has huge cost implications to businesses."
