Warrington pub bosses tackle petty crime

Warrington Guardian: Insp Richard Spedding Insp Richard Spedding

DOOR staff on pubs and bars will sport anti-theft warnings as part of a campaign by pub bosses to tackle petty crime.

Bouncers will wear black and silver jackets carrying messages advising residents to take care of phones, handbags and other valuables when out.

Insp Richard Spedding of Cheshire Police added: “Cheshire Police welcome the initiative from town centre businesses to promote public safety and reduce crime.

“Theft of personal belongings is an issue in all town centres and in Warrington they tend to be opportunistic in nature.

We have excellent relations with the security staff working in Warrington and this is another example of the efforts that we all go to so that people can stay safe whilst enjoying themselves.2 Katherine Fairclough, deputy chief executive of Warrington Borough Council, said: “It's great to see Warrington's pubs and night clubs showing responsibility and taking these small but important steps to help reduce crime and help people stay safe while they're out having fun."

Petty crime?? Maybe the Police should take a look at the people that employ these doormen first and make sure they're not getting away "Petty Crime."

I know for a fact that Fusion on Bridge Street are refusing to pay a number of workmen and subcontractors money that are owed. Honest, hard-working, local tradesmen have completed work for them only to be told they are not going to be paid for the work they have carried out.

I personally think the Police should put a stop to them trading and taking money over the counter until they pay staff who have worked there what is owned.

Maybe the Warrington Guardian could also start asking questions and see if they get anywhere.

That is a civil issue, I would suggest that the people owed money could send debt collectors round. I know of doormen that are also licensed debt collectors. Ironic but true.
