Local retailers used to be issued with photographs of repeat offenders as part of the Shopwatch scheme which ceased to exist over a year ago.

However, some local shop owners and managers are frustrated that the police no longer provide them with photographs of the criminals that pose a threat to their livelihoods.

“Local shop owners and managers are frustrated and rightly so. These shoplifting criminals pose a threat to local businesses. Staff need to be aware of who the repeat shoplifters in the town are.
