With 36 radios already in use by 29 different businesses, the scheme has contributed towards creating a collaborative and proactive environment for tackling shoplifting and other criminal activities, thus ensuring a safer environment for customers and staff.

The Croydon Metropolitan Police also recognises the value of the Croydon BID Radio Link in supporting the business community. Inspector James Weston, Croydon Metropolitan Police, comments:
The scheme’s success has driven considerable interest from local businesses, with 12 further businesses looking to join in the coming weeks. At this rate, Croydon BID expects over 55 businesses to join the network by the end of the year.
Croydon BID is encouraging more businesses to join the Radio Link scheme and is offering a £100 discount to Croydon BID levy payers, reducing the cost to an affordable £150 + VAT per year. Non-levy members can also join the scheme for £250 + VAT per year.
