The digital crime-fighting initiative Facewatch now has ISO 9001 accreditation, the internationally recognised standard for the quality management of businesses.

“This means that our already high standards of data handling and system development will allow us to do business with every organisation in the UK – and indeed worldwide – which require that their suppliers are internationally recognised for good business practice,” said Simon Gordon, chairman and founder of Facewatch.

The internet-based system links bar, pub, shop and restaurant owners to the police and also allows them to share information in real-time to help crack down on low-level crime such as shoplifting, bag and wallet thefts. It also deters potential criminals from entering Facewatch members’ premises.
