TruckPol brought back to life

May 19, 2014
TruckPol, the dedicated road freight crime police division in the UK that closed in 2012 after its funding was cut by the government, has been revived by the National Business Crime Solution (NBCS).

The NBCS is a not-for-profit public/private partnership that will now work with freight and logistics companies, as well as local constabularies, developing data on truck crime.

The TruckPol re-launch began on 6 March, with it contacting every chief constable in the country to request the supply of freight crime data.

The Road Haulage Association (RHA), which fought against TruckPol’s closure in 2012, welcomed the re-launch. RHA Security Manager Chrys Rampley said, “Since the closure of TruckPol in 2012, the industry has received little or no intelligence on freight and haulage crime trends or hotspots. We are excited to get TruckPol back up and running to strengthen the fight against freight and business crime.”

Haulage and logistics crime data will be submitted to the NBCS before being analysed and disseminated to other participating business members locally, regionally, nationally or by sector. It provides a similar service for the retail industry.
