Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities that we will be concentrating on over the coming months:
To reduce the amount of retail crime theft.
Issued: December 2016
What we are doing:Officers will be visiting retail premises to provide a visible presence and will liaise with security to identify main offenders. We will also conduct plain clothes patrols and use CCTV to identify offenders. update: FEB 2017 we have conducted high visibility patrols in the most problematic areas of the city centre for retail theft and been proactive in visiting retail premises when offences are being committed. Officers are using communication links between police and shops to gain intelligence and respond to incidents of retail theft. Further work to identify persistent offenders is on going and it is our commitment to identify and prosecute offenders. Update: MARCH We have been continuing to run a dedicated operation for retail theft around the city centre focusing patrols on known hot spots and have worked with retailers to try and reduce the level of thefts from their retail outlets.
