More retailers sign up to the Warrington Against Business Crime scheme
Police and partners have joined forces with three superstores in Warrington in a bid to clampdown on shoplifters
Marks and Spencer at Gemini Retail Park, Asda at Westbrook and Tesco Extra in Winwick Road are the latest retailers to sign up to the successful Warrington Against Business Crime scheme.
It is part of an expansion of the retail crime reduction scheme, which already covers the town centre and Birchwood Shopping Centre.
As part of the scheme businesses work closely alongside police and partners to tackle retail crime, reduce anti-social behaviour and to reassure retailers and members of the public.
It also shares intelligence and information with retailers and business crime partnerships across the UK.
Dave Barlow, Business Crime Manager, said,We are delighted that these stores have joined the scheme. We have helped to reduce retail crime significantly for all the Warrington Against Business Crime scheme members, and we intend to have the same impact at these stores.
The Warrington Against Business Crime scheme was given national recognition in May when it secured the Safer Business Award for the first time. The award, which is handed out by Action Against Business Crime, recognises that the scheme meets a nationally recognised standard for business crime partnerships.
The partnership has been assessed to ensure that it operates to a national standard and carries out all of its activities to the highest levels of data integrity.
It is hoped that the Warrington Against Business Crime scheme will continue to be extended throughout Warrington over the next two years.
