Cat Converters marking rollout
Sidcup Partners were alerted by our Safer Neighbourhood Police team that cars in the area were being targeted for the theft of their catalytic converters, apparently thieves were cashing in on selling them for the valuable metal they contain.
We looked at ways we could help to reduce this crime and sponsored the purchase of security marking kits.
We can now share with you some of the results.
We are pleased to share the roll out figures below:
- Queen Marys (2 events) – 135 cars marked
- Morrisons Sidcup – 120 Cars marked
- Sainsburys Crayford – 147 Cars marked
- QE Hospital – 45 Cars marked.
The latest crime figures show we have made one of the largest reductions in motor vehicle crime across the Metropolitan Police.
On the 17th April we gave out some very well received goody bags. We are hoping to do the same again in the coming weeks.
