Meter Tampering and Energy Theft in Newcastle and Gateshead

On 24th February, Crimestoppers, the UK’s independent crime-fighting charity, are launching a campaign to tackle meter tampering, a common form of energy theft.  In addition to the increased costs that energy theft can place onto honest customer bills, tampering is a crime that can have very real and dangerous consequences like fires and explosions, which threaten the lives and homes of innocent people.

Crimestoppers play a unique role in tackling crime in the UK, by providing an anonymous reporting service for people to come forward without fearing the repercussions from the community or criminals themselves.  In this campaign, we are using methods to reach as many people as possible in the Newcastle and Gateshead area to inform them of the criminal and safety consequences and signs to spot energy theft.  Activity is also taking place to directly disrupt those who might be tempted to tamper.
