(PRWEB UK) 29 September 2012
Datatag, the market leader in equipment security and registration for business and domestic use, has announced the formation of a new Training Division. The new division has announced its first course, The Plant Theft Awareness and Identification Course which is set for 13th and 14th November 2012. The 2 day course, which will be held in Gloucester, is designed to appeal to a wide sector of personal within law enforcement such as roads policing, ports and customs officers, FIB, PCSOs, SOCO and vehicle examiners. The course will be of benefit to loss adjusters and engineers from the insurance sector also.
The new Datatag course has received accreditation from Education Development International (EDI). The aim of the course is to equip officers with the confidence and knowledge to stop, examine and deal with any piece of suspect construction or agricultural machinery effectively.
There isn’t a police force in the country which hasn’t felt the effects of construction and agricultural equipment theft, by professional and opportunistic thieves, over the past few years and theft rates continue to rise. Since car theft has become much more difficult, without access to the keys, professional criminals have turned their attention to softer targets including construction and agricultural machinery. As Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) technology does not work with this type of equipment the most effective agent to recovery, in the critical 48 hours after a theft is reported, is a confident and well trained police officer!
Bespoke ‘in-house’ courses are available by request, for specific constabularies, to reduce travel and subsistence costs.
For 2013 a wider range of courses will be available including the Plant Theft Awareness and Identification Course in different locations around the UK and new courses to equip the police, law enforcement officers and members of the asset finance and insurance industries with the knowledge and confidence to tackle the theft of cars, vans, caravans, trailers and motorcycles and document fraud.
