DeterTech solar crime barometer

Across the UK and Europe there continues to be a substantial increase in solar-related crime, with Solar farms – both under construction and in operation –finding themselves targeted by Organised Criminal Gangs.

To understand both the severity and extent of this problem, together with practical advice on how solar operators can safeguard themselves against such threats, Secured by Design member company DeterTech has developed an insightful problem paper which you can download here.

DeterTech is proud to operate a national intelligence portal for the police and critical infrastructure companies, to track the movements and activities of organised criminal groups across the UK. Its information sharing agreement with the National Police Chiefs’ Council allows its team of crime intelligence analysts to access police data from all forces in England and Wales.
