Warrington pub bosses tackle petty crime
2:00pm Thursday 12th December 2013 in News
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."
