Tracker scheme recovers £35k worth of stolen goods

Date of alert:

Thursday, 22 September 2022

Crime Ref:

Force:

Police Service of Northern Ireland

A pilot scheme by Causeway Coast and Glens Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP) and the PSNI, in partnership with CanTrack Global Ltd, has led to the recovery of £35,000 worth of stolen assets.

Among the items returned to their rightful owner was a farm quad which was taken during a theft in July.

The pilot project, introduced in February 2020, aims to encourage farmers and the rural community to adopt crime prevention methods like the installation of tracking devices. By subsidising the cost of the PROTECT tracking unit and first year subscription, participants have been able to protect quads and agricultural vehicles.

Speaking about the recovery, PCSP Chairperson, Councillor Adrian McQuillan said: “The PCSP is delighted by the success of the pilot rural tracker scheme, which has helped to ensure the recovery of valuable stolen equipment.
