Tackling the theft of large goods vehicles and their loads is primarily a matter for police forces, and Police and Crime Commissioners will hold Chief Constables to account for their efforts to tackle local priorities.

The National Crime Agency will also ensure that partners across the law enforcement community with a role in countering and preventing the theft of large goods vehicles and their loads benefit from its coordination, tasking and intelligence arrangements, as well as being able to access its specialist capabilities where appropriate.
