Datatag ID, the power behind the CESAR scheme initiative, has announced the dates of the final 'CESAR IT' days in 2012.

The CESAR scheme, which was launched in 2007, has gone from strength to strength with many leading manufactures, including Massey Ferguson, John Deere, New Holland and JCB fitting CESAR as standard on equipment sold in the UK. CESAR is the most successful scheme of its type in the world with over 100,000 pieces of equipment now protected. The CESAR scheme not only aids the return of stolen equipment but also acts as a powerful deterrent against theft.

'CESAR IT' days were launched by Datatag, in conjunction with the police, as an initiative to help promote the scheme and allow farmers to bring machinery and equipment along that had not previously been fitted with CESAR. With the rise of theft in the agricultural market more and more farms are falling victim to audacious thieves with high value equipment 'stolen to order' and shipped abroad.

The final 'CESAR IT' days of 2012 have been arranged in Hampshire on the 13th and 14th December. The final days are set to be the biggest yet with over 50 pieces of equipment booked in for CESAR fitting by a fully trained and CRB vetted installer. The Hampshire events have been arranged by local the Farmwatch. Their representative Ruth Harper-Adams had this to say "There has been such a brilliant take-up of this wonderful anti-theft system and I am so pleased. We are in talks with the local Newspapers and TV stations to cover this anti-theft initiative in the Test Valley area. I just hope that the criminal fraternity, that we are constantly plagued by, may see or read about the CESAR IT event and that it will well and truly put them off."

Test Valley Farmwatch, Hampshire constabulary and the farming community are most grateful to Test Valley Community Safety Partnership for their generosity and help in subsidising a much needed scheme to prevent rural crime across the district.
