We recognise the distressing and disruptive impact vehicle theft can have on victims, and we are determined to ensure we do all we can to prevent these crimes.

In January, I chaired the first meeting of a new Vehicle Theft Taskforce which brings together industry, the police, and others to help ensure the response is as robust as it can be.
