Shop Lifting Offences.
Over the last 6 months we have had a gradual increase in relation to shop lifting offences. Regular users of our Facebook page will have noticed this as we publish footage of those we want to trace in relation to these type offences. We also have our Durham Constabulary Internet site on which we use Caught on Camera to circulate images of wanted persons.
With the assistance of Caught on Camera, Facebook and Twitter we are still managing to trace over 80% of the offenders and solving these crimes. There is a simple message for those wanting to take a chance and shop lift there is a very strong possibility of you being caught!
