Serial shoplifting offender Alisha Parke has received a 32 week custodial sentence after appearing in court charged with two counts of theft from Cheltenham stores and two breaches of a Criminal Behaviour Order which effectively bans her from entering almost all shops in Cheltenham. The Order was obtained with the assistance of a number of Cheltenham Daysafe member stores who provided the necessary evidence.
Cheltenham Safe is a business crime reduction scheme, working in partnership with the Police, Cheltenham Borough Council, the Chamber of Commerce and other key partners.
Since its launch in 2007, Cheltenham Safe has through effective partnership working achieved significant reductions in retail crime and crimes of violence in contrast to a national picture of increasing crime levels. A recent survey of members indicates that they believe membership of Cheltenham Safe has made a substantial contribution to this reduction.
