Reducing business crime and its impact on local businesses is an important priority for the BID. Apart from the effective detection, apprehension and prosecution of offenders, we are taking measures to reduce the opportunities for criminal activity.

Harrow BID works closely with partners who can help us create a safer area to live in, work in and do business in.


We attend the quarterly meetings of the Safer Neighbourhoods Greenhill Ward Panel, where we discuss aspects of the town centre with police officers, councillors and local residents. We also attend the term-time monthly meetings of the Deputy Heads from Harrow schools and police officers.

We provide input to meetings of the borough’s Anti Social Behaviour Action Group where decisions are made about issuing Criminal Behaviour Orders and Community Protection Notices and we regularly ban troublesome youth and prolific shoplifters from the town.

Harrow BID in partnership with Harrow Council is a sponsor of the Best Bar None scheme

Best Bar None is an Accreditation Scheme with National Awards supported by the Home Office and the drinks industry which is aimed primarily at promoting responsible management and operation of alcohol licensed premises.

The BID has 3 BIIAB trained staff members who inspect licensed premises and has helped to ensure our pubs and restaurants offer high standards of care to their customers and meet their legal responsibilities. Venues who pass the various social, welfare and health & safety checks receive accreditation plaques and each year awards are given to the best venues in various categories at an awards evening held locally.
