Shop watch

Derbyshire Police and the Amber Valley Community Safety Partnership are continuing to work together to target retail crime, which can be a significant cost to the local economy. Shoplifting has risen in Amber Valley over the last few months by 16%, compared to the same period last year, and we want to put a stop to this trend.

Amber Valley Shop Watch scheme is getting well established, with many businesses now members, and those arrested for shoplifting may not only face a criminal prosecution but also an Amber Valley Shop Watch six-month ban, from more than 60 shops across the Amber Valley area.
