Retailers throughout Rushden will soon be signed up to the latest information on prolific shoplifters following agreement from Rushden Town Council to fund membership for High Street retailers and many outlying stores to an intelligence gathering scheme.

Rushden Town Council has pledged to support retailers across the town to enrol with Northamptonshire Business Crime Partnership (NBCP), a non profit organisation aimed at clamping down on retail crime.

NBCP provides some 500 retailers across the county with the latest information and intelligence around prolific shoplifters and allows retailers to report crimes online to Northamptonshire Police. It also runs an exclusion order scheme that targets repeat offenders and bans them from member stores for a minimum of 12 months.

The ethos of the NBCP is to PREVENT, DISRUPT and DETER retail crime offenders. This is achieved by working together with member stores and the police to make shopping areas a no go area for those persons intent on committing retail crime.

Northamptonshire Police and Crime Commissioner Stephen Mold supports NBCP, and he praised the actions of Rushden town council in ensuring that retailers in the town can access their services.

Stephen Mold, Northamptonshire Police and Crime Commissioner, said: "I congratulate Rushden Town Council on their proactive approach to creating a safer town. Teaming up with the Northamptonshire Business Crime Partnership will help to tackle shop crime and prolific offenders and I am confident it will promote a better environment for both shoppers and staff."
