Retailers in Chorley in Lancashire are being asked to help in the fight against shoplifting as part of a new campaign launched by police. The force points to recent statistics that while crime remains low as a whole in town, shoplifting has seen a slight rise, with items including food, alcohol, clothes and DVDs as targets. Officers and PSCOs will now be visiting local stores to forge stronger working relationships with Chorley businesses and offer crime prevention advice.
Sgt Al McMiken who is co-ordinating the campaign said: “We will be hitting the ground running visiting multiple shops and stores in the Chorley to talk about how to deal with shoplifting. Crime remains low in Chorley and this is simply a small blight which I hope, with some co-operation with local businesses, can be swiftly eradicated.”
