Vehicle crime conference

Fleets worried about vehicle crime can learn about new developments to tackle auto theft at a National Vehicle Crime Conference in Warwickshire in May.

The event will highlight recent developments in tackling vehicle theft.

Delegates, including senior police officers, insurance experts, Government officials and vehicle manufacturers at the two-day conference will also be given an insight into the latest technological developments to target vehicle crime, with sessions on roadside technology.

International smuggling routes will highlight the gateways that other countries provide to organised crime groups.

Keynote speakers at the conference, which takes place on May 7-8, include representatives from the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO); Lord Brian Mackenzie of Framwellgate; and members of the International Association of Auto Theft Investigators (IAATI).

UK Branch President Dr Kenneth German believes the Conference offers an essential opportunity to share expertise and discuss current trends in tackling vehicle crime.

“Vehicles are becoming more difficult to steal, but the thieves are adept change managers, making profit from cloning, staged accidents, identity theft and finance fraud,” he said.

Further details can be found on the the IAATI website at www.iaati.org.uk
