On the 12th April, the National Infrastructure Crime Reduction Partnership (NICRP) delivered a 'Tackling Metal Crime' training event at the Tally Ho Conference Centre in Birmingham.
Aimed at police, law enforcement and partners who are actively involved in tackling metal crime and support operational activity, the audience were treated to presentations by the National Crime Agency, Gwent Police, Joint Unit for Waste Crime, Smartwater Group, BT Open Reach and Western Power.
The day kicked off with input from the NICRP on the Scrap Metal Dealers Act, providing learning and understanding (concluding with a knowledge check!). Areas covered included catalytic convertor theft, licensing, enforcement powers and case studies.
As part of their national programme, the NICRP has provided free metal crime training to almost 1000 people across the UK, both online and in classroom-based delivery. Aimed at police and law enforcement partners, our bespoke metal crime course provides education on this very important piece of work. Ultimately providing the necessary skills to tackle infrastructure crime and the affect it has on the nation.
Robin Edwards, the NICRP subject matter expert said "feedback for the Tally Ho event was very positive and we are looking to build on the successes by rolling out further free training across the UK."
