Metal theft toolkits

As part of the first Pol-PRIMETT project, British Transport Police produced a Metal Theft Toolkit.

The Metal Theft Toolkit is a training package designed to raise the awareness of metal theft to police officers. The toolkit is also accompanied by a pocket sized leaflet for police officers for ease of reference.

The Metal Theft Toolkit has been shared with police in Italy, Spain, Greece and Bulgaria for delivery to the country’s police forces.
