ACS has welcomed new research from City University of London calling for greater action from the Government to tackle violence against shopworkers.
The research, which was commissioned by the Co-op, references ACS’ Crime Report which shows that there were almost 10,000 incidents of violence against shopworkers in the convenience sector last year, 40% resulting in injury of staff. The report calls for:
** A post implementation review of the Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act
** New legislation to introduce tougher penalties for attacks on retail workers
** Drug testing on arrests for shop theft and violence against shopworkers
