TRACKER signs exclusive five-year deal with UK police forces

The agreement, which includes the Police Services of Scotland and Northern Ireland, sees TRACKER detection units fitted in police patrol vehicles and helicopters.

Using Very High Frequency (VHF) and GPS technology, TRACKER's Stolen Vehicle Recovery (SVR) system enables the police to pin-point a stolen vehicle, even if it is hidden in a container or lock-up.

Detective chief inspector Gordon Roberts, head of ACPO Vehicle Crime Intelligence Service, commented: "This agreement extends the important long-standing partnership with TRACKER for a further five years. Our work with TRACKER has delivered real results for colleagues across the country, helping them recover stolen vehicles and importantly, arrest criminals. This partnership is part of our ongoing commitment to clamping down on car thieves and raising public confidence in our ability to recover their possessions and bring offenders to justice."

Since 1993, TRACKER has recovered over £491m worth of stolen vehicles and continues to recover on average £1m worth of stolen vehicles each month. TRACKER has a dedicated police liaison team, which includes former police officers who work with all of the UK's police forces.
