A story in the Burton Mail gives details of two top cops in Derbyshire saying that supermarkets must do more to deal with shoplifting.

Dhindsa said: “We want to work closely with retailers to help them to protect their business. One problem we face is that, often, reports of retail crime are reported after the event, which is not the most efficient use of police resources.”
