As mentioned in a previous post, worldwide prices of copper, lead and other non-ferrous metals continue to rise, metal theft has become one of the most serious crimes blighting the UK. So say organisers of a conference on metal theft.
That crime is estimated to be costing the British economy £800m a year. The first ACPO national forum will provide a platform for those involved in tackling these crimes both in rural areas and towns and cities to discuss the current issues and help to formulate a collaborative plan for the future.
The seminar is running on Wednesday, February 8, at Kettering Conference Centre, Thurston Drive, Kettering, NN15 6PB from 8.30am – 4.30pm.
Lord Henley, Minister of State for Crime Prevention and Anti Social Behaviour Reduction, Home Office

Richard Crompton, Chief Constable, Lincolnshire Police – ACPO Lead for Wildlife and Rural Crime
Mat Crocker, Head of Illegals and Waste, Environment Agency
Ian Hetherington, Director General, British Metal Recycling Association
Peter Lowe, Network Services Security, Western Power Distribution
Tony Glover, Energy Networks Association
Dave Cording, Deputy Chief Executive, Crimestoppers.
The focus of the event will be on greater collaborative working, increased intelligence and information sharing.
