Welcome to the Eastbourne Business Crime Group (EBCG) Website

The EBCG Business Crime Partnership  is a 'not for profit' organisation funded by members of the scheme.

Who we are

EBCG is a Crime Reduction Partnership operating Shopwatch and Nightwatch benefitting local retailers, licensed premises and the public of Eastbourne. Our goal is to achieve a safer environment for the whole community in which to live, work and socialise.
