Shopwatch has traditionally been used to help prevent profit shrinkage and loss due to “passive theft”; however, it is now a fact of modern life that there is a higher incidence of anti-social behaviour with retail staff increasingly becoming the victims of crimes of a more violent nature.
Shopwatch is designed to tackle and prevent retail crime and anti-social behaviour through effective communication and the prompt reporting of retail crime, anti-social behaviour and criminal activity. It will help to promote a sense of security for customers and staff and improve police/licensee liaison by providing effective communications through two-way radio and other dedicated services such as links to CCTV control rooms.
People visiting a premises that operates a “Shopwatch” system are made aware by means of posters and window stickers. This reinforces the message that staff are connected and able to interact with other shops, as well as the police and PCSOs, if necessary. Gould Electronics can provide these items if required.
Prevent and tackle retail crime and anti-social behaviour with instant communication and the prompt reporting of suspected criminal activity. Help promote a sense of security for customers and staff. Improve police liaison by providing effective communications through two-way radio. The ShopWatch system is not intended to replace calling 999 in an emergency nor 101 to report an incident but is intended to complement existing communication channels. It can be used to exchange information on known criminal activity with the police, to report a lost child or to reach out for first aid help where a customer may have suffered a medical emergency.
Braunton’s Police Sgt. Andy Brock said about their system: “Braunton is one of the safest communities in the country. The ShopWatch initiative show that the police, local businesses and Safer North Devon are working hard to ensure that it stays that way for workers, visitors and residents.
Carol Harding of Safer North Devon, the organisation that helped fund Braunton’s radio link, said: “Experience from other schemes we have introduced in Bideford, Ilfracombe and Westward Ho! already shows how effective a community radio link can be.”
Our bespoke ShopWatch systems have an antenna mounted within the town centre. This type of installation provides clear audio quality between all members, PCSOs and/or the police, outdoors or indoors. The system also benefits from having an IP connection to a CCTV control centre where staff are able to monitor day to day communications. Our ShopWatch systems can link multiple sites, regardless of distance, using IP technology.
