Carmen Ceesay

Carmen Ceesay works across Visit West’s three business improvement districts (Broadmead BID, Bristol City Centre BID, and Redcliffe & Temple BID) as manager of the Bristol Business Crime Reduction Partnership.

The BCRP incorporates the two Bristol Shopping Quarter shopping centres; The Galleries and Cabot Circus. The BCRP collaborates closely with Avon and Somerset Police, Bristol City Council and city centre businesses to collate information and intelligence about criminal activity, and to identify and tackle crime issues.

The BCRP aims to address the crime that specifically affects businesses through sharing of information and building strong relationships with the local authorities. To do this the BCRP invests in the intelligence sharing platform, Disc, which allows businesses, the police, and the council to share intelligence and submit reports of business crime.
