Welcome to the Dover Partnership Against Crime Disc system

Set up in 2001, Dover Partnership Against Crime (DPAC) is a Business Crime Reduction Partnership which covers the towns of Dover, Deal and Sandwich in Kent. It has more than 120 members including retailers, licensees, taxi companies, transport firms and local tourist attractions. It is one of the most successful business crime reduction partnerships in the country and has been consistently awarded a distinction at its two-yearly assessments.

The purpose of the Scheme is to prevent, detect, or reduce the impact of, low-level crime and anti-social behaviour on local businesses within the Dover Partnership Against Crime Scheme Area.

Each DPAC member has a two-way radio which enables them to communicate with each other, the police and the CCTV control room. This system has proved to be a valuable resource in tracking criminals, deterring them from committing offences and catching them if they do.

Prolific Offenders are issued with our Exclusion Orders banning them from entering DPAC member's premises for 12 months. This has proved successful with many offenders either changing their behaviour or moving away from the town altogether.

It is not just thieves that members look out for. DPAC has helped cut down on anti-social behaviour in the towns as well as helping to find lost children and reunite owners with lost property.

We have a very successful PubWatch scheme and have several exclusions in place for those that insist on ruining it for others.

The partnership operates this secure website, access to which is restricted to members by invitation only. The website provides a number of important benefits:

  • access to active local offenders
  • communication between Police, CCTV and Local Businesses
  • instant messaging
  • dedicated mobile app and desktop application
  • electronic incident reporting
  • alerts
  • news items
  • calendar dates 

DPAC and its partners are making a significant difference to life in Dover, Deal and Sandwich and we would welcome more traders, pubs, and other businesses who would like to join us.
