Retail security scheme in partnership with Police Scotland
Established in November 2009, Check Out is designed to clamp down on thefts and other crimes at city centre stores. Launched by Essential Edinburgh, in partnership with Police Scotland, Check Out utilises modern communications technology to allow city centre retailers to share real time information and to act quickly against criminals and those intending to commit a crime.
Check Out is the brainchild of community police officer Bruce Burt. It follows hard on the heels of the successful Check In initiative launched by PC Burt and Sheraton Grand security staff two years ago, which has combated fraud and anti-social behaviour in the city’s hotels and now has a membership of 60 hotels. A number of high-profile fraudsters have been exposed by the Check In project.
The scheme is managed by Essential Edinburgh, with invaluable support from the security team at John Lewis in Edinburgh.
