The National Equipment Register (NER), a division of Verisk’s ISO Crime Analytics and the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) have released a national report on 2010 heavy-equipment theft. This year’s report continues to focus on the types of equipment most likely to be stolen and recovered, and the location of thefts and recoveries, said NER. The report’s objective is to help provide equipment owners, insurers and law enforcement personnel with information to help allocate investigative resources and influence theft prevention efforts.

“Recovering stolen equipment and identifying the rightful owners remains a challenge,” said Joe Wehrle, NICB president and CEO. “Improved equipment registration, theft reporting and law enforcement training have shown encouraging signs of success, and we’re confident the numbers will continue to improve.”
