National Strategic Assessment for 2017 outlines the rising level of Motor vehicle theft by Organised Crime Groups (OCG’s)
The theft of Motor vehicles is an organised crime threat as broad organised acquisitive crime and other criminal activity is on the upward trend. This is reflected in all regions and vehicle types – some vehicles including those of high value are stolen for export. Although the rise in theft of motor vehicles is reflected across all regions and vehicle types, the most significant increase is in the theft of motorcycles and scooters which in some cases are used to enable other various acquisitive crimes.
An assessment of the national nature and scale of vehicle theft indicates that 1 in 4 cars and vans are highly likely to be stolen by electronic compromise, where theft occurs by various technical means without the use of the original key (also known as keyless theft).
It is highly likely that the upward trend of theft of motor vehicles will continue to be stolen for use as enablers of other criminal activity. It is also highly likely that electronic compromise methods will continue to be exploited, fuelled by the availability of related technology.
