A CRIME-FIGHTING organisation wants to expand its services, but high street business owners say it is too expensive.

Dacorum Business Against Crime, which already represents 64 shops in Hemel Hempstead, wants firms in Tring and Berkhamsted to join them.

But Danielle Dawson, who owns lingerie shop Gorgeous in Tring, said the service costs too much.

She said: “It is just a company saying we want to make businesses safer, but they want us to pay a membership.”

The group has so far been unavailable to comment.

Businesses in Tring and Berkhamsted can attend a meeting about the service on Tuesday, March 20, from 6.30pm until 7.30pm.
