ISRI Creates Law Enforcement Council to Combat Metal Theft

The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) has created Law Enforcement Advisory Council to help the association develop a comprehensive program to address metals theft.

The Washington-based ISRI said in a news release that it has assembled a group of 10 law enforcement officers, prosecutors and security personnel with an understanding of the metals theft issue. The council will advise ISRI on an initiative, which will include a multi-layered training program to assist law enforcement.

“The recycling industry has long been on the front lines as part of the solution to metals theft, working closely with local law enforcement and prosecutors to deter crime and creating a nationwide scrap theft reporting system to help in the investigation and capture of thieves,” said Robin Wiener, ISRI president. “The establishment of the Law Enforcement Advisory Council is part of an even more advanced, comprehensive approach by the industry to address the problem of metals theft through training and greater outreach efforts.”
