UNDERCOVER officers will be on patrol in Tesco at Pool to put a stop to shoplifting.
The initiative is part of Operation Nutmeg, an ongoing operation from Devon and Cornwall Police to target shoplifting in Camborne, Pool and Redruth.
Officers will be conducting both high visibility and undercover patrols with the aim of deterring and catching those who are committing offences.
The initiative is being run jointly with Tesco Xtra, Pool and their security team, who will be assisting with CCTV and patrols.
A spokesman from Tesco said: “We are delighted with this operation from out local police to help us improve the shopping experience for our customers and thank them for their continued support.”
