A resounding success! Datatag ID Ltd in conjunction with Clancy and Combined Industry Theft Solutions held a police training day in Harefield.
58 police officers from six forces attended a full day's training into Plant and Agricultural machinery theft and identification with hands-on examinations in the afternoon. The feedback from the day has been excellent - and we are pleased to report that one of the officers attending the event recovered a stolen dumper as a result of the training!
There isn’t a police force in the country which hasn’t felt the effects of construction and agricultural equipment theft, by professional and opportunistic thieves.
The cost of rural crime in the UK rose over 40% in the first quarter of 2022 as thieves returned to the countryside - following falls in 2020 and 2021. With these regular training courses, Datatag ID Ltd, CESAR Scheme aims to drive down construction and agricultural equipment theft.
Thanks to all the contributors including Ian Elliott, Kevin Howells, NaVCIS Chris Piggott and Nick Mayell. And a warm welcome to our new Datatag ID Police Liaison Officer Vincent Lane
