The Neighbourhood Policing Team for Pontypridd town centre have been working with businesses to improve reporting of shoplifting.
15 stores have worked with the town centre policing team and staff now have a document at hand to note down the information needed to assist officers in investigating the offence.
Sergeant Owain Watts said
“By ensuring the businesses provide the right information and take note of things which are important to us as the offence is happening we are making it tougher for thieves to escape prosecution and easier for staff to share the information with police promptly.
“We have already seen success with this resulting in the arrest and convictions of repeat offenders and we are planning to role the scheme out to more businesses.”
