Money Talk: Forecourt crime is more than just drive-offs and no means of payment
15 May, 2017

Interesting to see that BOSS (the British Oil Security Syndicate) has launched a 'forecourt crime index' to help retailers gauge their own experience against a national benchmark. It's a good idea, and one not to be dismissed, however, the real limitation is that the index appears to relate specifically to drive-offs and NMoP (no means of payment) incidents as if they were the only elements of forecourt crime. Some with long experience in the industry might beg to differ. That's not to suggest that these two problems are insignificant. Assuming that the estimated £30m-a-year cost of these incidents is accurate, that works out at an average of around £3,500 per site nationally.
