Newark town centre Shopwatch to crack down on crime and anti-social behaviour

By Abigail Hunt

A shopwatch group is set to crack down on crime and anti-social behaviour, making the town centre a no-go zone for thieves and yobs.

Police are backing the initiative to help send the message: ‘If you steal from Newark, Shopwatch will be on you.’

Shopwatch is a group of retailers who communicate with each other via radio throughout the working day and also have a direct link to CCTV, police and the district council’s community protection officers.
