Police-Private Partnership to Tackle Metal Theft II
Pol-PRIMETT II (P-PII) is an expansion of the existing Pol-PRIMETT project (Oct 2010-Sept 2013) which fits within ‘Prevention of general crime’ and ‘Operational law enforcement cooperation’. P-PII will continue a horizontal approach by expanding the public-private partnerships and infrastructure in place for the dissemination of best practice regarding metal theft. Public-private collaboration is not uniform amongst MS; P-PII provides a platform for a variety of joint practices to be shared and adapted to suit MS. The expanded project provides further dissemination opportunities regarding offender profiles; location of crimes; target materials; stolen metal supply chain; prevention countermeasures; public-private security strategies; legislation & voluntary codes of practice
Expansion to 8 MS provides wider opportunities for LEA cooperation & connection to EMPACT projects, in which partners are engaged. The project will increase knowledge of the involvement of organised crime, the relationship to other acquisitive crime and the impact on communities and businesses. This increased understanding & collaboration will provide opportunities to disrupt & reduce the movement of stolen metals.
These activities are reinforced by the organisation of 3 public-private events per annum bringing together expert user groups to improve levels of international liaison, sharing knowledge, skills, intelligence, enforcement and prevention techniques between LEA’s & the private sector.
