TruckPol is the nationwide police intelligence service based near Coventry; which collates; analyses and publishes information on all aspects of road freight crime. Originally set up by the Metropolitan Police in April 2003; the unit's intelligence is based on input from various sources including police forces; insurers and vehicle operators. Its work is supported financially by a number of industry sponsors with matching funding provided by the Home Office. TruckPol is currently a unit within the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) Vehicle Crime Intelligence Service (VCIS). Members are encouraged to submit information on incidents of vehicle-related crime to TruckPol. This helps the unit to obtain a national perspective in its strategic overview of road freight crime and to provide a national database of stolen freight. Unfortunately the database is not a definitive list of all road freight crime as not all crime is reported to the police and not all police forces report their crime details to TruckPol.
