Since the beginning of the ‘one touch reporting’ trial, NBCS have worked closely with Sussex Police and Co-op to identify a number of prolific offenders targeting stores in the Sussex area. Police have attributed the arrest of five prolific local offenders to the success of this project so far.
39-year old Chris Way from Worthing West Sussex is one of these offenders. On March 15 he was committed to prison for thirty-six weeks for his persistent shoplifting in the local community and for his breach of a community order and electronically monitored curfew. Other successes can be found below…
- Prolific male offender brought to our attention from data shared as part of the Sussex trial.
- NBCS were able to link the offender to other incidents in other member stores.
- NBCS served a collaborative exclusion on the male with conditions not to enter member premises.
- Male was found guilty and charged with 10 offenders and will be sentenced in May
- Prolific female offender brought to our attention from data shared as part of the Sussex trial.
- Female was found guilty and charged with a number of offences and sentenced to 26 weeks imprisonment.
- Upon her release from prison, the female immediately entered a store and reoffended.
- Thanks to the trial processes, this was identified immediately and the female remains wanted for the additional offence.
