Following the success of our catalytic converter marking event in May, we are holding a second session on Wednesday 22 June.
We are particularly keen for owners of 4x4s and other vehicles with high clearances to come along, as these types of vehicle tend to be the criminals prime choice, as they are easier to access from underneath.
The event will take place on Wednesday 22 June at the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA), Weedon, Northampton, NN7 4PP, between 8.30am and 3.30pm.
If you would like to take advantage of this free marking session, please call Suzie Fletcher on 03000 111 222, ext 8422. It is important that an appointment is made otherwise it will not be possible to conduct the marking on the day.
Appointments will be held every 10 minutes and we currently have 32 slots left. Please call as soon as possible (and by Thursday 17 June) to reserve a place.
Each marking kit comes with a unique 'CAT' marking code. Once registered, the unique code can be married up with the vehicle registration details.
In the event of the catalytic converter being stolen and subsequently recovered, police can check details via a 24-hour helpline.
Our Crime Prevention Officers will be on hand to give vehicle security advice and explain the benefits of marking the catalytic converter. The marking will be done by mechanics from our Transport Department.
