A significant amount of retail and community crime is driven by drug dependency, at UKPAC we believe in supporting those who want to break free from such addiction.

Over 500 towns and city centres use this particular Crime Reporting Platform across the UK, as well as national retailers, many of the largest shopping centres in the country, security companies and police authorities
It empowers communities, via the mobile and desktop application, to ‘self-manage’ the reporting of low-level crime and ASB. In turn, enabling local authorities to work faster and smarter with the community to deliver effective, joined-up community policing, in real-time.
