IAATI conference to cover increasing car crime and cuts to police Stolen Vehicle Units

The event, which takes place on 8-9 June 2016 at Holywell Park in Loughborough, will look at the evolution of vehicle crime, the current face of vehicle crime, keyless thefts, smuggling arms and drugs, cash for crash, GPS jammers and stealing cars for export.

Justin Powell, IAATI UK president, said: “Vehicle thefts are already increasing and the inevitable result of cutting more SVUs will be a widening of the gaps in police knowledge and skills. In short, the wheels will come off.

“Whether we are talking about the targeting of modern classics, such as Ford Escorts and Land Rover Defenders, or tech-savvy criminals using electronic compromise to steal cars worth hundreds of thousands of pounds each, it usually involves organised criminal gangs.

“Vehicle crime, as well as being a problem in itself, is also a key enabler of other serious crimes, including terrorism. It is therefore imperative to keep up the pressure on these networks. IAATI promotes joined up thinking, a partnership approach, between law enforcement and the private sector, which is essential in tackling all areas of vehicle crime across the globe.”
