Scotland Crimestoppers and Retailers Against Crime joint conference held

Scotland Crimestoppers teamed up with Retailers Against Crime on 5th September for the RAC annual conference held at Glasgow Caledonian University [September 2013].

The event included sessions on Crimestoppers, methods used by criminals, conflict management, internal fraud, identity theft, nationwide intelligence, banknote features and plastic card crime.

The purpose of the event was to reduce the opportunity for criminal activity through front line education and awareness by expert speakers. The event also highlighted consistent partnership working, which is key to the success of RAC and Crimestoppers.

Speakers included Assistant Chief Constable Wayne Mawson of Police Scotland; an input on the Integrity Line was given by Crimestoppers Commercial Manager, Kate Johnston; and the conference was closed by West of Scotland Committee Chairman, Alan Gall.

West of Scotland volunteers had an exhibition stall at the event and we would like to thank RAC Operations Director and Crimestoppers volunteer Maxine Fraser for this opportunity.
