Retail Crime Watch

Retail Crimewatch is an information and image sharing, exclusion order project between retailers and the PSNI, which is administered by Belfast City Centre Management.

This award-winning crime reduction initiative allows retailers to serve civil Exclusion Orders on those found committing retail crime offences on their premises.

Each month retailers receive images of shoplifters who have had previous convictions for shoplifting within Belfast City Centre and other policing districts across Northern Ireland. This information is then used to enhance staff vigilance and awareness of known offenders and assist in reducing stock loss within businesses. It also assists in maintaining a safer environment for staff, customers and members of the public alike.
