CPA funding to support NRCU and NCATT

The Construction Plant-hire Association (CPA) has agreed to provide a total of £90,000 funding over the next three years to support the work of the National Rural Crime Unit (NRCU) and the National Construction and Agricultural Theft Team (NCATT) in preventing and detecting the theft/fraudulent acquisition of construction plant hire equipment and its recovery.

Stu McInroy, CPA Chief Executive (pictured above) said, “Our members benefit directly from the work of the NRCU/NCATT. Theft and fraud has a significant and increasingly damaging effect on our members’ businesses and our £90,000 contribution to the work of the NRCU/NCATT will bring immediate, tangible benefit to our members in preventing and detecting criminal activity and the recovery of illegally obtained plant hire equipment.

“We urge government to increase the support it provides to the NRCU/NCATT as theft and fraudulent activity costs our members millions of pounds every year and impacts significantly upon the operations of UK Plc,” Stu added.

The CPA is collaborating with the Construction Equipment Association (CEA) and insurance companies that together are contributing over £650,000 to fight machinery theft across the UK.
