Update

The theft of catalytic converters is on the increase within the district. The current vehicles being targeted by the thieves are particularly those that have high clearance (those with a large gap between the base of the vehicle and the ground) and include camper vans as well as the usual vans and cars.

Essex Police is already taking a number of actions to address this issue, including running overt and covert patrols, and working with local scrap yards, garages and local industrial watches. However it is advised that where possible you take steps to help reduce the risk.

Some recommendations are as follows. Recommendations 1-3 apply particularly to business premises, and recommendations 3-7 apply to all motorists:

1 Fencing Around Vehicles
Fencing around the vehicles (change to "Parking within a secure fenced and gated compound" )may act as a deterrent to opportunist catalytic converter thieves.

2 Defensive Parking
If you have a fleet of vehicles, block those with high clearance using vehicles with low clearance. This will obstruct access underneath the vehicle.

3 Effective Security Lighting
Good security lighting makes vehicles visible to the street without creating glare and can act to deter the thief.
4 Garages
Where possible park in your garage
5 Welded Bolts
If your catalytic converter is ‘bolt on’ you can have the bolts welded shut. Although this is only a deterrent where the thief is working with a wrench.

6 ID Etching
Etch your converter with a serial number. This (add "may act as a deterrent and") will help the police to track (replace with "provide police with evidence of the owner should" your converter should it be stolen (add " and later recovered"). (add "for more information") go to the website: www.retainagroup.com

7 Consider a protective cage for the catalytic converter - contact your car dealer:
For further advice please contact your local Crime Reduction Advisor by using the non-emergency police telephone number of 101.

If you know who is committing catalytic converter thefts contact Essex Police on the non emergency telephone number or Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111. If you spot any suspicious activity around vehicles, then please call Essex Police on 999 as soon as possible .

You can take action in a number of ways to help make your neighbourhood a safer place to live, work and visit.
