Thanks to a new partnership between SentrySIS and Tendring Security, local businesses located in the North East Essex district of Tendring now have the latest digital tools to make them more effective in their fight against retail crime...

Launched earlier this month, Counter Crime Partnership (CCP) is the new umbrella organisation where local businesses in the region can join to share information about retail and business crime in the area.

The new scheme allows retailers and other local businesses to receive and share real time information through the dedicated business crime software solution by SentrySIS.

Members of CCP can access the SentrySIS platform via a cloud based web portal or, for the first time, using their CCP businesses against crime radio handset.

Chris Nriapia from SentrySIS commented and said: “This is great news for local businesses in Tendring and the surrounding areas as they can now collectively help prevent retail crime and anti-social behaviour.”

The SentrySIS platform is currently being used by crime partnerships and local retailers within the Yorkshire and North East region of the UK. The new agreement between Tendring Security, SentrySIS and the Counter Crime Partnership will be the first of its kind in Essex.

Tendring Security already provide an extensive radio network within Tendring working with organisations such as Tendring District Council’s 24 HR CCTV Control Room, Safewatch and a series of retail parks and entertainment venues.

Director of Tendring Security and Crime Manager of CCP commented and said: “The businesses that make up our high streets are a major part of our districts identity and we want to help protect them. These businesses are run by family and supporting them is a core element of our business mission…”

The current radio network scheme will now be incorporated within the new crime partnership with plans of expanding the initiative even further to surrounding areas.

Local businesses within Clacton-on-Sea, Brightlingsea, Frinton & Walton, Harwich & Dovercourt, Jaywick and other local towns can join the partnership by visiting or on 01255 446000 for more information.
