This includes the collation and dissemination of good practice and developing guidance on the use of Impact Statements for Business, which give victims of business crime the opportunity to set out the impact the crime has had on the business, including, for example, financial loss. The NRCSG also continues to work with retailers to improve the management and response to shop theft using a partnership approach according to local circumstances.</p><p>On 21 January I announced that we will launch a call for evidence on violence and abuse towards shop workers to strengthen our understanding of this issue, including how existing legislation is being applied.</p><p>In addition, the Sentencing Council is reviewing its guidelines on assault and a consultation on a revised guideline is anticipated to commence this Summer.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government understands the distress that can be caused by the theft of a pet. It is therefore important that these crimes, when they take place, are reported to the police so that they can be investigated and, where appropriate, the perpetrators taken through the courts and given appropriate sentences.</p><p>In 2017-18 the Government is providing police forces in England and Wales with direct Government funding worth over £7.5 billion to tackle all types of crime. As far as the police response to individual incidents are concerned, it is for Chief Constables and Police and Crime Commissioners, as operational leaders and elected local representatives, to decide how best to deploy resources to manage and respond to crime and local priorities.</p> more like this
