BUSINESS owners are urged to avoid leaving cash in tills and floats in their premises following a spate of break-ins.
Nottinghamshire Police issued the advice following burglaries of shops in Worksop and restaurants, cafes and takeaways in Mansfield, Newark, and Nottingham this week.
A force spokesman, said: “Install an autodial alarm, which can be linked to the police.
Ensure the till drawer is left open overnight to make it clear there is no cash present and display a clearly-visible, brightly-coloured notice stating that there is no cash left on site overnight.
“If necessary, make use of a safe to store cash.”
