Retailers in South Tyneside are being urged to get advice about how to reduce the risk of their premises being targeted by shoplifters.

As reported in The Shields Gazette, South Tyneside Council has joined forces with Northumbria Police to offer businesses the chance to get tips about how they can help to deter shoplifting on their premises.

Guidance will be given on how to recognise and prevent people from committing offences, plan the layout of their premises to help deter crime, and get clued up on the law and measures available to deal with shoplifting should an incident occur.

Councillor Tracey Dixon, lead member for area management and community safety at South Tyneside Council, said: “Shoplifting is a national issue, but here in South Tyneside we are working with our partners to take a proactive approach to reducing crime across the borough.”
