The latest meeting of the APPG for retail crime discussed the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill, currently being debated in the House of Lords, and the latest materials being published by the #ShopKind campaign.

In the House of Lords. Baroness Neville-Rolfe and Lord Coaker have tabled amendments aimed at giving retailers in England and Wales similar legal protection as retailers receive in Scotland, where attacking a shop worker is now an “aggravated” offense.

The NFRN is supporting these amendments and is providing briefings to peers to encourage their backing. The amendments are expected to be debated in mid-November.

The APPG will meet again in November to monitor the progress of the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill.

The meeting also discussed the latest posters being made available for retailers at the end of November by the #ShopKind campaign.

This Home Office-backed initiative aims to tackle some of the problems being faced by retailers by reminding people to be respectful of staff and other customers in shops.
