Local businesses are invited to complete a short questionnaire, which will be used to capture the views of local businesses  and help shape the priorities of the police-led centre in tackling business crime.
Completed questionnaires and any additional comments need to be sent to businesscrime.mailbox@met.police.uk no later than Friday 16 June 2017.
