Some of the measures used in Café Watch such as the Chelsea Clips and reminding people to be vigilant can seem relatively simple but can make all the difference.
Daniel Astaire, Westminster City Councillor
There has been no reported bag theft since customers started using The Chelsea Clip, which is fitted under all the tables in our new German-themed bar.
Manager, The Manchester Bierkellar
We are confident that The Chelsea Clip is an effective way of deterring bag theft in the Westminster area and we would encourage all those who frequent pubs and restaurants to make use of the added security the Clips offer in protecting personal luggage.
Helen Wheeler Osman, Westminster City Council
Since Chelsea Clips have been introduced to nightclubs in the Wrexham area, there have been no bag thefts reported from any of the clubs. Local police have recommended them to nightclub owners following a spate of bag thefts at late-night venues.
