Harrogate Businesses Urged To Increase Security

The Harrogate Advertiser reports that police have urged local shop owners to increase their security after more than 100 additional offences were reported in the town centre alone this year.

From February to August 31 this year, the average number of reported incidents of shoplifting across the district was higher than the North Yorkshire average.

Superintendent Mike Walker said, “From my point of view there’s an onus on the retailers in relation to how they deal with shop thefts,” whilst adding, “shops have to do a lot to stop shoplifting. We know their priority is selling goods to the public but sometimes their main priority is not to stop shoplifters.”
