Employees in the hospitality and service sectors have a good view of life happening in our communities. We’ll help prevent crime and help you recognise the signs of crime in the following ways:

  • we’ll visit fast food businesses, hotels, postal services etc in Gwent
  • we’ll train employees to recognise the signs of criminal exploitation if you see it
  • we’ll ask you to act as our ‘eyes and ears’ to identify patterns of criminal behaviour
  • we’ll advise you on what to do if you suspect that someone is being exploited.


  • knowing that employees working in the hospitality industry are working in partnership with the police will deter offenders
  • employees in the hospitality sector will feel confident about calling the police with their suspicions
  • the information that partners pass on will help to identify and safeguard vulnerable people
  • the intelligence Gwent Police receives will help to identify and convict offenders involved in serious crime and criminal exploitation.
