We Don’t Buy Crime doesn’t just focus on acquisitive crime, crimes such as burglary and theft, but it looks at the associated harm that comes with it.

Criminals involved in acquisitive crime can often be involved in much wider serious and organised crime, or they themselves could be being criminally exploited through modern slavery, county lines or child sexual exploitation. They could be being forced to commit crime by other people.

A new element of We Don’t Buy Crime to address the associated harm is our exploitation and vulnerability work. We have dedicated trainers who deliver bespoke training to organisations, including voluntary organisations and community groups to help raise awareness and the signs to look out for.

As part of our fuel theft initiative staff at fuel stations and other premises nearby, such as fast food restaurants and coffee shops are upskilled so they know what to look out for and help them identify if someone using the facility may be vulnerable and being exploited.

The training is free. To find out more email wedontbuycrime@westmercia.pnn.police.uk
