Book Your Place at the 2018 Crime Seminar on 20th March

The 2018 Crime Seminar will feature a first look at the 2018 Crime Report, detailing the impact of crime on the convenience sector from shop theft and fraud to abuse, violent incidents and burglaries.

The Seminar will also see the launch of new guidance which has been designed to help staff in stores mitigate the impact of crime.  

ACS chief executive James Lowman said: “Dealing with crime is one of the biggest operational challenges that retailers face on a daily basis. Our Crime Seminar is an opportunity for retailers to hear directly from the Government and the police about their plans to deal with crime, as well as hearing from other convenience store owners about what they’ve done to reduce the impact of crimes like shop theft and abuse in their businesses.”

  • Rory Geoghegan, Head of Criminal Justice at the Centre for Social Justice
  • Patrick Holdaway, Head of the Local Policing Delivery Unit at Hampshire Police
