Shopworkers under siege

The One Show, which is one of the UKs most watched and loved early evening BBC shows reported on the fear, worry and challenges facing the retail trade. It highlights the disregard shoplifters have for CCTV and staff when focused on stealing from stores. The police, due to cuts, are almost powerless to manage the number of incidents and will only really respond to situations involving physical violence to staff. One manager interviewed notes she has not been to court as a witness on shoplifting for 8 Years.

There are never easy solutions or answers to issues of public behaviour and Facewatch are focused on building trust in Facial Recognition to help retailers of all sizes to offer normal customers the best level of service by using the very latest technology to exclude those people intent on disruption and even before a crime is committed by using system.

The show is available on the BBC iPlayer until early July
