The garden centre has formed close ties with South Wales Police in working together on a number of crime-fighting initiatives including an awards scheme honouring members of the public and the police who have taken action to make the streets of the city safer.
Wyevale loss prevention manager Ann Wood said:
"The relationship between Wyevale and South Wales Police has been strengthened since a serious incident at the garden centre in December 2007.
"I visit Swansea regularly and each time meet with Inspector Nigel Whitehouse of South Wales Police to talk through areas of mutual support. Police officers pop in and walk around the garden centre when they are in the area."
Wyevale Swansea manager Martin Phillips encourages the police to park their vehicles in the garden centre's car park as a visual deterrent to criminals.
The working partnership between Wyevale Garden Centres and South Wales Police has been further strengthened with the company sponsoring a police recognition day to honour public citizens, police officers and police civilian staff who have taken action to help the community.
Wyevale Garden Centres sponsored an awards event at the Gorseinon Centre near Swansea in November where commendations were made to people to honour their civic duty for acts including tackling thieves and recovering stolen items.
Inspector Nigel Whitehouse said:
"On behalf of South Wales Police I would to thank Wyevale for their kind sponsorship of the Swansea police recognition day, which enabled us to commend the achievements of members of the public, police officers and staff together with special constables.
"Wyevale have forged strong links with the police on the Eastside of Swansea and I hope these links continue and grow from strength to strength. It is important that all companies work with us to ensure that business crime is kept to a minimum."
