EUCPN webinar: what works to tackle fencing?
Burglars and thieves steal particular items in order to sell them, so they can buy whatever it is that motivates them to steal. The aim of anti-fencing strategies is to make it more challenging to sell/trade stolen goods. When fences cannot make sufficient money anymore by selling stolen goods, it might partly discourage theft itself. At the moment the EUCPN Secretariat is writing a paper on effective prevention strategies that can be implemented to tackle fencing. This paper will be published by the end of June.
In the context of the EU-wide Focus Day on domestic burglary the EUCPN will already share its findings and recommendations during a webinar ‘what works to tackle fencing?’ on Friday 17th of June at 11:00 CET. During this webinar we will present general information about the phenomenon itself and the three main focus areas that should be targeted: the stolen goods, the fences and their customers and the illicit stolen goods markets.
Participation is free but registration is mandatory.
