Can Shoplifting be detoured by Cardboard?

Well a city in Hull, UK believes it can. Life size cut outs were placed in shops to act as a psychological deterrent to thieves.  During a five month period crime figures fell 5%.

”Shoplifting in Hull has dropped since the introduction of so-called “cardboard coppers” in the city’s stores, police figures show.”

I think this is an interesting initiative and could be an option in other cities, What do you think?
