TWDIST hosts metal theft seminar
In recent years, there has been a rising public concern about metal theft cases. In the past, culprits damaged public facilities and stole metal items such as copper pipes, water taps and copper lighting conductors, many of which were sold to marine stores and scrap metal recycle stores.
In line with the Operational Priorities of New Territories South Region and Tsuen Wan District (TWDIST), targeting at quick cash crime, the District Intelligence Section hosted a Metal Theft Seminar at Tsuen Wan Police Station on September 9 for the owners and employees of the local marine stores and metal recycle stores. The seminar enhanced the audience's knowledge of the offences related to metal theft, and their ability to identify the common types of stolen items. This approach went a long way towards helping TWDIST strengthen co-operation with the stores concerned to tackle the crime, and obtaining intelligence on metal theft in the future.
Speaking of the objective of the seminar, TWDIST Assistant Commander Glenn O'Neill said: "We appreciate the co-operation of the local industry and realise the difficulties they face in identifying possible stolen items. We hope our seminar would make them more aware of this problem and we are looking forward to strengthening our partnership in the future."
