Shopwatch scheme has been introduced in Yate which a number of local shops have signed up to. This scheme allows shop owners involved to share information about current shoplifters.
Shoplifters identified are then banned from the shops under the scheme. If they continue to commit offences Yate NPT will then consider using Anti-social Behaviour powers to address their criminal activity.
06/05/21 – Shopwatch is working well amongst local shops.
