26/08/2019 PCC calls the UK motor industry to tackle vehicle theft.
The West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner has written an open letter to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders SMMT), calling on them to address the increase in vehicle thefts. SMMT is the industry body for the motor industry and represents over 800 automotive companies in the UK.
The PCC is angry at the apparent ease at which criminals are stealing cars and has pledged to publish car theft data every six months so motorists can make informed decisions about their choice of vehicle.
But is this reasonable and what else is being done to address this increase in crime?
