by msecadm4921

To inaugurate the Motorcycle Action Group Foundation, a seminar on security, motorcycle theft and the identification of stolen motorbikes will be held at the Arts Centre at the University of Warwick on Saturday, September 18, from 1pm and finishing at 5pm.

The seminar will be led by Ken German, Vice President of the UK Branch of the International Association of Auto Theft Investigators, now retired from the Stolen Vehicle Unit of the London Metropolitan Police, DC Barry Mudie, Police Examiner from the Stolen Vehicle Unit of the Metropolitan Police and Ian Kerr, police officer.

The purpose of the seminar is to: explain the techniques for identifying rung/clone bikes and clarify the difference between ringing and cloning; explain what the participants should look for when trying to determine whether a bike is rung or cloned; discuss the work that the police have already done for the public and what to do if there are suspicions of a rung/clone bike; disseminate information so that the participants can point people who have concerns or suspicions, in the right direction; and consolidate relationships between the police and the motorcycling

The seminar will be divided into five: Ken German will discuss his work and experiences of motorcycle crime. MAG’s Research Officer will present our own data from the surveys carried out over the last two years on theft and security and look at trends and theft data to give an overall picture of statistics and motorcycle theft. Ian Kerr will discuss his work concerning motorcycle fraud and theft.A training video on the examination of vehicles will be shown. Barry Mudie will then discuss the fine art of examining stolen motorbikes and explain what members should look for and what they should do if they have any suspicions. Ken German will conclude by discussing the new motorcycle theft website set up by the police in collaboration with the motorcycle industry.

There will be time allotted after each talk for questions and answers. At the end of the seminar a CD of the workshops will be given to all participants. If wishing to attend, please note that a nominal fee of £15 per person will be required to cover costs (MAG members can go free).
