We’re waiting for a new Petitions Committee

Petitions had to stop because of the recent general election. Once a new Petitions Committee is set up by the House of Commons, petitions will start again.

Closed petition Make vehicle/tool theft specific offences with increased sentences

We want the Government to make vehicle/tool theft specific offences, with increased minimum and maximum sentences for those convicted of these offences.

More details

A recent video published by On The Tools interviewed a self-professed thief: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zrZsIWlj7lc

During this interview he said that the only one thing that would stop vehicle tool theft was an increase in punishment. He described tool theft as high reward, low risk. And that the current vehicle safety measures were good, with cages been particularly difficult, but the deterrent was simply not there.

Tougher sentences should act as this deterrent, and hopefully save the financial heartache of the hard working tradespeople targeted by this crime.
