‘DON’T CON­FRONT’

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News -

DR KEN GER­MAN is a for­mer boss of the Met Police’s Stolen Ve­hi­cle Squad. He now works for the In­ter­na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Auto Theft In­ves­ti­ga­tors (IAATI), the or­gan­i­sa­tion for pro­fes­sion­als pre­vent­ing and de­tect­ing ve­hi­cle crime.

‘Won­der­ful is the only word to de­scribe so­cial me­dia when re­cov­er­ing stolen cars. It’s in­stant, and it’s the mod­ern day in­ter­pre­ta­tion of putting up posters. Do re­mem­ber to re­port it to the police as well though, and don’t write any­thing out­ra­geous. State all the in­for­ma­tion and facts you know.

‘If you think you’ve seen a stolen car, re­port it to the police to see if it’s out­stand­ing. Don’t wan­der over and con­front – it might’ve been re­cov­ered and it could be the owner with the ve­hi­cle.’
