Digitpol’s Stolen Vehicle Investigation Unit developed a unique monitoring platform and tracker that operates on LITE, VHF and Low Powered Networks (LPWAN) and cannot be jammed like traditional GSM/GPS devices. The solution is in partnership with a Telecoms provider and LITE network operators.
Digitpol’s proactive platform is monitored 24/7 by agents which allows for a wide range of customised alerts and alarms. Once an alert is triggered Digitpol’s team deploy to recover the vehicle automatically. We deploy instantly and the process is carried out in line with Police services across Europe. This is the only proactive system that works with a response team and with instant alerts in cooperation with the Police across Europe.
Our technology ensures full visibility on your vehicle even if your vehicle is concealed in a shipping container or parked in an underground car park we will locate it. Our monitored tracking system will give you the full peace of mind with a low cost. The aim of the project is to provide a cost effective solution to a real problem and to work with the public sector to jointly combat the problem of thefts.
Digitpol’s tracking device can be installed on-site and the installation fee covers 1 years monitoring. The monitoring is only activated when specific parameters are met and when alerts are sent, all Digitpol’s agents receive them in real time throughout Europe.
In the UK and across mainland Europe, vehicle thefts are on the rise, the UK Policing Minister, Nick Hurd, chaired on the 15th of January a meeting on a new taskforce to tackle vehicle theft.
The taskforce replicates the successful model used to reduce moped-related crime in London, which fell by a third in the period from January to October 2018 compared with the same period in 2017 last year. It will drive forward action to reduce and prevent vehicle crime and promote best practice.
The taskforce will meet every 6 months and publish an action plan with new measures. Vehicle theft has risen by 7% in the last 12 months and has impacted communities across the country.
The Sun reported, The revelation was branded alarming by industry experts. Drivers face a postcode lottery, with some areas significantly outperforming others.
Merseyside Police recorded 35,624 stolen in the past decade and found 26,816, a 75 per cent recovery rate. West Midlands Police recorded 73,644 in the same period but recovered only 8,643, a 12 per cent rate. The RAC’s Simon Williams said: “Drivers will be surprised to discover that on average less than half of vehicles stolen end up recovered. Combined with vehicle thefts rising, it’s alarming.”
A large number of stolen vehicles leave the UK to mainland Europe, Digitpol’s proactive system is an approach to combat the problem.
