Datatag advocates for CESAR Scheme at INTERPOL's Global Vehicle Crime Conference in Lyon, France
Last week at the INTERPOL Headquarters in Lyon, France the 4th INTERPOL Global Conference on Vehicle Crime took place. Close to 200 law enforcement delegates from around the world gathered to discuss global trends in vehicle crime and the steps being taken to combat this ever-present issue...
Datatag ID, a key conference sponsor, was there to present the significant success the CESAR Scheme has had in the UK in tackling plant and machinery theft as well as the recent addition of CESAR ECV and the introduction of their next generation ultra high-frequency RFID technology.
Kevin Howells, Managing Director said after the event ‘This conference was a perfect platform to share best practice with those dealing with the issue of vehicle theft head-on around the world. The CESAR Scheme, which we are proud to be the power behind, has since 2007 shown what can be done to reduce theft in both the construction and agricultural markets and we have had some extremely positive discussions with numerous delegates about the benefits of introducing this award-winning scheme in new territories.’ He went on to say, ‘We are confident that we will be able to announce some exciting news regarding CESAR’s expansion into Europe and beyond in the coming months.’
Kevin, during his address to the conference, detailed the recent CESAR Scheme technology advancement which is the introduction of the next-generation UHF RFID tags. These high-tech wonders allow much greater read distances for Police, using Datatag scanners, to check a machine's identity meaning that checks can be carried out quicker and at a safer distance. Uniquely programmed and most importantly completely secure these, combined with CESAR ECV and allied to the DATATAG secure database of over 1.5m assets, means that DATATAG is the only choice when it comes to security marking.
As a final point in his presentation, Kevin highlighted the growing issue of fuel theft and Datatag’s innovative answer - VENOM. VENOM, a unique forensic DNA fuel marker, developed in close collaboration with the construction industry, has been undergoing trials in the UK with a major construction company. Early results show a dramatic reduction in fuel theft from those sites protected by this innovative new security product.
