On Tuesday 17 August, NFRN representatives met with Suffolk PCC Tim Passmore to discuss his next plans to incorporate retail crime within the force’s new crime plans.

The Commissioner understood the impacts retail crime has on independent retailers, and the vital role they play within local communities. The Commissioner also recognises that crimes against businesses are often perceived as ‘victimless’, such crime has wider ramifications, and can affect profitability, employers, employees, customers and the wider community, and Business crime can deter investment in the county and its infrastructure.

Within the crime plan, Mr Passmore will support tougher sentencing for offenders, advocating PCC’s becoming part of the justice system. But the Commissioner mainly emphasised the importance of reporting all crime – regardless of size or value – for future allocation of resources and holding other chief officers to account.

The NFRN looks forward to working with Suffolk police following the Commissioners crime plan consultations in September.
