The Raid-control crime prevention initiative has been recognised as an example of best practice by the Association of Chief Police Officers' Gun Crime Prevention Manual, for its success in reducing robberies.
Raid-control requires retailers to adopt five crime prevention measures: staff training, cash minimisation, time delay, image capture and stolen cash traceability. This combination is proving highly effective in reducing commercial robberies. For example, 41 retailers in Stockport suffered 67 robberies between them in the 12 months before Raid-control was installed. After installation, robberies were down 87%, to just nine.

Following the response by Sainsbury's and Asda to the CMA's damning provisional findings on their proposed merger, do you agree with the PRA's assessment that their proposed solutions to the concerns could result in hundreds of forecourt closures?
