Bob Higginson of The Chart Room and PCSO Karl Copik of Brixham Police have created a WhatsApp Group to enable traders to quickly share reports of suspected crime or anti-social behaviour in the town.

Bob said ” Brixham is generally a very safe place and the vast majority of locals and visitors are honest and law abiding. Unfortunately every now and then, like every town, we come across those who are intent on stealing from restaurants and shops or behaving disruptively. This WhatsApp group will allow us to alert other traders and the police about individuals or groups in the town who have left restaurants or cafes without paying their bill, who we suspect may be guilty of shop lifting, using stolen cards or counterfeit cash or who have caused trouble on our premises”.

If you have a business in the town, contact Bob Higginson to join the group.
