‘Cost effective’ cops were on display at our October meeting. Creative Solutions provided Newport Business Association with a cost-effective way of cutting crime -cut-out-cops to deter crime and reduce shoplifting.
Businesses feel vulnerable to rising crime during these difficult economic times and have had to take drastic action to secure premises from criminal activities. NBA members suggested an alternative to expensive deterrents.
NBA members suggested that cardboard cutouts, as demonstrated with the three cost-effective, cardboard policemen displayed at the meeting, could deter burglars and thieves from shops and business premises.
Police Forces have loved the idea, and the cutouts, when placed in shop windows and doorways, boost public confidence, deter criminals and make the police more ‘approachable’. Greater Manchester Police claim that the cardboard cutouts at superstores have reduced shoplifting by 75%.
“I had some great suggestions and questions from the members of the NBA. It is clearly an association that not only promotes business to business opportunities but is also keen to engage with the important issues of the day and to support the local community. Thanks and well done to the NBA.”
If you’d like to order the incredibly life-like cardboard policemen, call Newport Business Association on 01799 541114, or email firstname.lastname@example.org for a special introductory offer of £60 + vat, or £160 + vat for all three. The dedicated police team could make the ultimate deterrent. Work them in shifts or station them in different areas. See web site for more details: www.newportbusinessassociation.co.uk

Great fun making the video shorts, had four businesses getting together.
Comments so far:
“The NCTJ was delighted to provide the venue for Newport Business Association’s filming and support this local initiative. It all ran very smoothly and I’m looking forward to seeing the finished videos.”
Joanne Butcher, chief executive, National Council for the Training of Journalists
Tony Pullen: “It is very good and I think the grandiose Universal Studios opening is excellent. People like to enjoy a bit of fun and find it easier to trust someone who doesn’t take himself too seriously but is nevertheless good at what they do, Go for it Jezzah!
Jim Cliff: “Really excellent! Although, obviously, I hate all the bits with me in them!”
|Matthew Radway “I think it’s great but the mock-universal opening and film style credits at the end take away a little from the professionalism of it.”|
Tony Pullen “Excellent – to the point, I hope it gets the views it deserves”
|Anthony Rose: “Very good. snappy presentation and i like the key points emphasised just right”|
|Jane Hill: “Love it! Nice to ‘see’ you again :-). Good use of the old ‘on time, every time’ – did you know that Air UK used that tag line in the mid to late 80’s??? Great job Jeremy, I hope it brings you masses of views and business.”
