An excellent day at the RAC Northern Ireland Conference. The event was supported by the Department of Justice and opened by David Ford, Minister of Justice who stressed the importance of partnership working: “Partnership working is crucial. Government and the police cannot deal with this issue alone and I therefore welcome the proactive approach adopted by Retailers Against Crime and their members who are working on the ground to identify key issues for retailers”. T/ACC Chris Noble also spoke at the conference and highlighted how the PSNI are working together with businesses throughout the Province: “The PSNI will continue to work in partnership with the business community to keep people safe and to create an environment that allows business to prosper.”
The day also included sessions on cybercrime, methods used by criminals, the threat within and nationwide intelligence, Crimestoppers to name a few. Information on banknotes, plastic card crime and further crime prevention advice was available to delegates to take away. The event focused on consistent partnership working and information sharing which is key to the success of RAC. Thank you once again to our exhibitors on the day who were:
ABM Software, Apex, CIFAS, Cordant, Link Integrated, Securitas, Trading Standards, Ulster Bank and VIS Security.
