Wiltshire PCC holds crime survey for firms

A crime survey put together by the Wiltshire police and crime commissioner aimed at businesses in the county has attracted more than 130 responses.

Part of Conservative Angus MacPherson's remit as commissioner is to consult firms about crime and disorder.

Mr MacPherson said theft was "seen to be a victimless crime but it's not - we all are victims as we spend money in industry and commerce".

The results of the study will be shown at a business forum in September.

The survey started in June and is aimed at finding out how business are affected by crime and anti-social behaviour.

The business forum is due to be held at the Corn Exchange in Devizes on 6 September.
