A recent webinar, chaired by policing minister Kit Malthouse, unveiled the work of the National Retail Crime Steering Group’s ‘Task and Finish Groups’. The full webcast can be viewed here.


The groups were set up after the government responded to the call for evidence on violence against retailers and focused on support of victims, communications, data sharing and crime reporting and recording.


The NFRN was part of the group focusing on support for victims, drawing together a range of resources to support the victims of crime, including links to the Ministry of Justice’s victims support services database. More information and resources can be found here.


The #Shopkind campaign, which was also launched last month, was a product of the work of the communications group.


The campaign urges the public to be mindful of shopworkers’ essential role in supporting people during these difficult times and emphasises that we should all treat workers and other customers with respect, kindness and gratitude.


It is backed by the Home Office and supported by major high street retailers, as well as the nation’s independent shopkeepers and the shopworkers union Usdaw.


Details of the campaign and the resources available for NFRN members to download can be found here.
