Cardiff Against Business Crime (CABC) Launch

The 31st January saw the launch of Cardiff Against Business Crime (CABC) which aims to ensure the safety and security of businesses and visitors to the city, as well as reducing anti-social behaviour.  Leading the scheme is FOR Cardiff’s newly appointed Crime Reduction Manager, Ian Tumelty.

Ian spent 30 years with the South Wales Police, during which he played a leading role within the ground-breaking Targeting Alcohol Related Street Crime (TASC) and ‘Lions Breath’ multi-agency projects in Cardiff to reduce violence and alcohol misuse.

Ian has since worked as an independent advisor to the Home Office’s ‘Ending Gangs and Serious Youth Violence’ programme and as a member of its Peer Review Team. He was also appointed as a project delivery specialist LOCOG to manage the City operations and partnership negotiations for the successful delivery of the football events in Cardiff as part of the London 2012 Olympics.

Ian has two years’ experience as Business Crime Reduction Manager and is the current Chair of the Wales Against Business Crime Group and Wales representative on the National Association of Business Crime Partnerships.

The new crime reduction programme involves partnership working with organisations across Cardiff including South Wales Fire and Rescue Service, Cardiff and Vale University Health Board, Cardiff Council, South Wales and British Transport Police, Cardiff Third Sector Council and The Police and Crime Commissioners Office.

The launch of CABC coincides with the arrival of FOR Cardiff’s new radio network, CityNet which will link businesses with CCTV, Police, Street Ambassadors and each other, to ensure issues are dealt with quickly and to keep Cardiff a safe place for all.
