Stolen vehicle recovery (SVR) expert, Tracker, is strengthening its capabilities with the appointment of Clive Wain as Head of Police Liaison. Bringing over 30 years of service in the police and a successful career as a Detective, Clive’s knowledge of organised crime and leading investigation teams for South Yorkshire Police brings invaluable insight to the Tracker team.
Clive joins Tracker having spent 22 years working within South Yorkshire Police, achieving the role of Detective Chief Inspector, before transferring to West Yorkshire Police in 2009 as Detective Superintendent. During his time as a Detective, Clive also acted as Crime Manager in Sheffield, where he managed and significantly reduced serious acquisitive crime, including burglary, robbery and vehicle crime. Throughout his career he has led covert investigation teams tackling serious and organised crime.
Clive ultimately became Detective Chief Superintendent, Regional Commander for Organised Criminality for Yorkshire and Humberside, where he developed and drove covert investigative teams in collaboration with other law enforcement agencies. At this rank he also headed up the internal professional standards department and force information management unit, later becoming the Head of Counter Terrorism Policing for the seven counties making up the North East of England Region.
Clive says of his new role, “This is an exciting step in my career, as it harnesses decades of experience gained in the police force to assist Tracker in tackling the problem of vehicle crime. Tracker understands the connection between vehicle crime and organised criminal networks and I will be able to utilise my expertise in this area, as well as help us build on already successful partnerships with UK police forces.”
Greig Hilton, Managing Director of Tracker Network UK, comments, “Clive is ideally placed to further enhance the unique relationship and working arrangements between Tracker and UK policing. He possesses the knowledge and expertise to work very positively with the commercial industry."
“During his police service, Clive excelled in performance management and in developing innovative ways of working, building partnerships and broader collaboration on a local, regional and national scale. This appointment marks our commitment to working closely with UK police forces to ensure we continue to close the net on car criminals.”
Tracker is a leader in SVR and the only provider to offer vehicle tracking systems that are supported nationwide by UK police forces. Unlike other devices, Tracker’s unique technology can locate stolen vehicles anywhere, even when they are hidden in a garage or shipping container.Tracker’s systems work like an electronic homing device. A covert transmitter is hidden in one of several dozen places around the vehicle. There is no visible aerial, so the thief won’t even know it’s there.
