The Manitoba Project Safe Shop pilot – focused on facilitating better collaboration between retailers, police, and the courts – is moving to Phase 2. With over 100 retail storefronts submitting data through the platform, more than 600 incidents reported, and just over 60 repeat offenders identified, RCC now working with Winnipeg Police Services, RCMP, and Brandon Police analysts to focus on the most prolific offenders.
RCC has also conducted a survey of Manitoba businesses, through the support of both the University of Alberta and the University of Manitoba in order to assess the current state of retail theft. A follow-up survey will be conducted in one year’s time.
