To assist members who wish to take part in Crime Minister Victoria Atkins’ fact finding on retail crime and violence against retailers, the NFRN has made the government’s questionnaire available through Surveymonkey.
The answers provided by members will be sent to the Home Office and will also be included within the NFRN’s own response to the call for evidence.
The government announced the call for evidence in response to pressure from Delyn MP David Hanson, supported by the NFRN. The aim is for the government to better understand the nature and scope of violence against retailers before they work with industry bodies like the NFRN to introduce measures to dealing with what is a growing problem.
The NFRN encaouages all members to take the time to fill in the questionnaire and to explain their experience of retail crime to ministers.
