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?
