The Home Office collects data relating to assaults and threats against retail staff via the ‘Commercial Victimisation Survey’ (CVS). However, the latest estimates are from the 2018 CVS (available in the link below). https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/crime-against-businesses-findings-from-the-2018-commercial-victimisation-survey.

The next survey will be conducted in early 2021 with results available later in that year.
