In an effort to reduce catalytic converter thefts in the area, the Harrow Safer Neighbourhood Teams are holding a catalytic converter forensic marking event in Morrisons Car Park, Hatch End, on Wednesday 30th March 2022 between 8:00am – 11:00am.
Police have advised that the event is for Harrow residents only.
Forensic marking kits will only be installed on the five most targeted makes of vehicles for catalytic converter thefts: Toyota, Honda, Lexus, BMW and Volkswagen.
Working in partnership with HiQ Tyres & Autocare and Harrow Council, this service will be offered free of charge and will only require the simple completion of a registration form to ensure that the unique identifier of the forensic marker used is linked to you.
On the day, police will set up a stand where crime prevention advice and leaflets will be available.
To best avoid traffic congestion, all interested persons owning the above vehicle makes only, who wish to have their catalytic converters forensically marked, are to park their vehicle in an available parking bay at the rear of Morrisons’ car park.
Please be aware that there are only 75 forensic marking kits available and it is anticipated that they will be allocated extremely quickly.
Harrow Safer Neighbourhood Police apologise in advance to any attendees who do not manage to have their catalytic converter marked, but there will be future forensic marking events where more kits will be available.
