The importance of retail security – Thetford crime info

According to the latest available figures from Police.UK, there were 120 instances of shoplifting in Thetford between September 2017 and August 2018. Although this represented 3.69 per cent of total crimes in the area, other offences such as anti-social behaviour (27.09 per cent), and criminal damage and arson (10.27 per cent) will also come as worrying news to retailers in Thetford.

In fact, extra police patrols have been deployed in the centre of Thetford after residents raised concerns about anti-social behaviour. In January 2018, Chief Insp Paul Wheatley said: “Anti-social behaviour remains a focus for policing in the town. We’ve had several reports of groups gathering in the centre, being aggressive towards members of the public and committing crimes. These patrols hope to tackle that.”
