Report violence and abuse

Posted on 24 Apr 2019

Always Report AbuseThe Association of Convenience Stores (ACS) is encouraging retailers to report every incident of violence or abuse.

The ACS, along with the Home Office, have launched the #AlwaysReportAbuse campaign, a campaign that aims to challenge the perception that being subjected to verbal abuse and aggressive behaviour is a normal part of working in retail.

The ACS's 2019 Crime Report illustrates that 83% of staff working in local shops have been subjected to verbal abuse within the past 12 months.

Retailers and staff are being encouraged to #AlwaysReportAbuse.

The ACS has created campaign materials, including a poster to share with and educate store colleagues, available here and a campaign video highlighting the human impact of crime on people working within retail, available here.

You can also request personalised posters featuring your store name. If this is something that you are interested in please get in touch with Chris Noice by emailing chris.noice@acs.org.uk.

Please share the message and #AlwaysReportAbuse.
