Sleaford Shopwatch is a group of town centre retailers who meet regularly to share intelligence and best practice to tackle shop theft and anti-social behaviour in Sleaford. Members make full use of the low cost radio handsets which allows them to have instant contact with each other and with the CCTV operators in Grantham.
The town PCSOs also carry Shopwatch radios for a co-ordinated approach to retail theft. The group may also issue banning orders to persistent offenders.
The meetings are regularly attended by the Neighbourhood Policing Team and the ASB Officer from North Kesteven District Council.
The Sleaford BID administers the Shopwatch group and radio scheme in conjunction with the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce and would be pleased to hear from anyone interested in joining the scheme. Please contact the BID Manager on 01529 413652.
