Metal Theft

ID-10067141In recent years, the UK has seen a rise in the theft of metal parts from various kinds of properties—including from rooftops and unoccupied buildings.  Thieves have even resorted to stealing manhole covers and church bells.  Hundreds of incidents occur every week, with losses totalling upwards of £700 million. Typical metals stolen include copper, lead and aluminium.  These metal parts are usually sold as scrap metal because of the rising price of valuable metals. What can you do to prevent these thefts if your property uses metals like copper, lead and aluminium? • Assess your property for valuable metals • Secure the premises, and ensure trees, scaffolding and other means of ingress have been removed • Inspect your property regularly • Encourage the surrounding community to keep an eye out for suspicious persons or behaviour • Consider installing an intruder alarm, or even hiring security services • Consider security marking metal goods on your property, so that they can be more easily found if stolen
