Maroochydore Police have teamed up with the Sunshine Plaza, retailers and Australasia Neighbourhood Watch to address retail theft.

The development of this strategy was prompted by a mutual desire from all sectors to prevent retail loss.

This strategy seeks a collaborative approach by law enforcement, the community and the retail sector.

It aims to increase public awareness of the impact retail theft can have on the community, particularity financial cost.

The strategy involves training staff in retail theft prevention and detection, the distribution of warning stickers and the installation of a TV monitor at the Plaza Police Beat in full view of foot traffic.

This will also display CCTV images of persons of interest in retail theft incidents in an effort to identify offenders.

The Sunshine Plaza Retail Theft Prevention Strategy is an integrated approach to reducing retail theft at the Plaza, and it sends out a clear message: stealing is an offence, you will get caught.

The Retail Theft Prevention Strategy is part of the Community Funding Programme supported by Neighbourhood Watch Australasia
