Fuel Thefts

fuel-theftIn the face of rising fuel prices Essex Police are concerned that an already endemic problem of fuel theft, particularly from rural buildings, will only get worse if steps are not taken to reduce them.  Whilst they will be doing their bit to apprehend the perpetrators, they have put together a comprehensive leaflet outlining steps you can take yourselves to help reduce the prospects of it happening at your home.  The leaflet, which can be downloaded from this site here, addresses the following topics:

  • siting of your oil tank,
  • control switches,
  • padlocks,
  • oil level guages,
  • security lighting,
  • defensive planting,
  • securing the tank, and
  • closed circuit TV.
