How to Get Involved
Launched in 2011, the Alliance to Reduce Crime against Heritage (ARCH), is a voluntary national network which takes forward initiatives to tackle heritage crime and galvanise local action as part of the Heritage Crime Programme.
The overriding objective of the group is to reduce the amount of crime that causes damage to or interferes with the enjoyment of heritage assets in England.
Members of ARCH have a shared interest in preventing and seeing effective enforcement of heritage crime. Through conferences and training events, the group is a means of discussing priorities, sharing information about heritage crime, carrying out training, highlighting best practice and making local contacts.
How to join ARCH
Membership of the group is free and open to all organisations and groups that have an interest in preventing and enforcing heritage crime.
