Impact Statement for Business
If your business has been a victim of crime and you report this to the police, you can make an Impact Statement for Business (ISB). The ISB gives you the opportunity to set out the impact that a crime has had on the business such as direct financial loss, and wider impacts, e.g. operational disruption or reputational damage. The court will take the statement into account when determining sentence.
All businesses and enterprises (including charities but excluding public sector bodies), of any size may make an ISB through a nominated representative.
You should be informed about the opportunity to make an ISB by the police at the same time as they take statements about the alleged offence. You can make an ISB to the police at that time or download the attached template form which you can complete and email or post to your police contact.
Warwickshire Hate Crime Charter
Developed by EQuIP, the Hate Crime Charter was implemented to support businesses across Warwickshire to identify and report hate related crime/incidents.
This new innovative project was first of its kind in the West Midlands and it has been developed in response to the large volumes of hate related crimes that are occurring in Warwickshire.
More than 80 businesses across Warwickshire are participating and benefiting from the Hate Crime Charter, staff are receiving hate crime awareness training and branded resources are on display in all five districts and boroughs in Warwickshire.
Businesses that took part in the first phase were mainly food outlets and supermarkets in various hotspot locations that are deemed most vulnerable to hate crimes/incidents.
These hotspots are based on official police statistics and other intelligence which suggested certain areas are at risk of hate crime. These often included business located on the high street, areas that had a high footfall of people visiting businesses open late at night.
The Warwickshire Annual Hate Crime Report highlighted food outlets as the most vulnerable environments for hate crime in Warwickshire.
The second phase of the project is focusing on public transport. All major bus and taxi companies operating in Warwickshire are being offered the opportunity to benefit from the Charter so keep a look out for #NoHateHere logo
EQuIP is also contacting organisations that manage the various train stations in Warwickshire.
The Hate Crime Charter is based on four key principles:
Champion a no hate crime policy within the organisation
Display the branded resources which sends out a clear message to perpetrators, customers and wider community
Train staff and volunteers working in the business sector to develop their awareness of hate crime/incidents with the view of identifying and reporting incidents.
Report all hate related crimes through the various reporting mechanisms available which include the www.reporthatenow.com website, telephone or email.
The Hate Crime Charter project is fully supported by Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Warwickshire Police and Warwickshire County Council.
Any local businesses that are interested in participating in the Hate Crime Charter, please contact EQUIP via: email@example.com or telephone 0330 135 6606 to seek further information.
