CESAR Champion initiative recognises police success

A new reward scheme has been launched for Police officers who identify and recover stolen construction plant, agricultural machinery and ATVs. The CESAR Champion initiative will recognise the efforts of any police officer who uses CESAR technology to identify a stolen piece of plant or agricultural machinery.

Dave Luscombe, CEA Special Projects, explains the procedure; “If a police officer conducting a check on a CESAR marked piece of kit identifies that the asset is stolen, they will qualify for an exclusive limited edition CESAR Champion badge.”

There are three different enamel badges up for grabs, one for each of the three asset types i.e. an ATV, a tractor and an earthmover. Dave continued, “The police officer who makes a recovery, once it has been logged with the CESAR hotline, should Tweet about the discovery tagging @CESARscheme who will then make contact to award a CESAR Champion badge”.

Nick Mayell, the CESAR police training and liaison officer and security expert, has trained 1000’s of police officers, from across the 43 UK Constabularies on CESAR identification. The officers are primed for the CESAR Champion challenge! The intention will be to present a special achievement award to the police officer, who has collected the most CESAR badges, at the CEA annual conference and PLANTWORX ‘Awards for Excellence’ ceremony in 2021.

The CESAR Champion’ initiative begins with immediate effect – let the competition begin!
