THE HOME Secretary Michael Howard was the guest of honour at a high street crime prevention seminar held by Southampton firm Hepherd Winstanley & Pugh.
The conference, held by the firm to mark its 350th anniversary, saw the firm's senior partner, Tony Askham, call on the government to continue making the prevention of high street crime a priority.
"We strongly encourage the Government's stance on crime prevention in the high street," said Askham. "It is costing our clients very dear and the more resources that can be pumped into this area the better.
"Retailers are taking their own initiatives, but the Government must continue to give this sector priority."
Howard said the Government was committed to implementing closed-circuit TV as it plays a major role in preventing theft and violence.
