Tracker has signed a five year extension on its partnership with all UK Police Forces including The Police Services of Scotland and Northern Ireland.
This renewed agreement confirms Trackers's position as the only stolen vehicle recovery operator to have its system operated by all UK Police forces, with detection units fitted in police patrol vehicles and helicopters.
The unit leads police to stolen vehicles without having to rely on relayed messages from call centres, which can result in delays and the loss of a vehicle. Using Very High Frequency (VHF) and GPS technology, Tracker's unique 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."
Head of the Police Service of Scotland’s Road Policing Unit, Chief Superintendent Iain Murray added: "We are delighted to continue working with Tracker, which plays an important role in successful stolen vehicle recoveries for Police Scotland. The use of the system is an extremely useful tool which assists our proactive crime work because it leads us straight to stolen vehicles, delivering real results for the victims of crime."
