Recipero and Trace secure continuation of access to the FBI Stolen Articles file

Recipero is pleased to announce that the CJIS sub- committee that controls access to the FBI Stolen Articles file on the NCIC database has unanimously agreed that the arrangement to supply the information to the Trace service operated by Recipero should be made permanent and will recommend this to the full committee at its next meeting.

Les Gray, Recipero IT Director who attended the meeting in St Louis Missouri along with Ken Bouche, Recipero’s USA law enforcement liaison said:

“We are delighted that the FBI can see the value of providing this data to allow the public to check if an item they are buying is recorded as stolen with them. It helps enormously to cut down the markets for the disposal of stolen goods including online auction and classified sites. The moral here is if you are buying used goods check them with us first and if you are selling stolen goods beware as you may well be caught out”

Notes for readers: The NCIC file is a file of stolen property that is contributed to by all the USA law enforcement agencies. Recipero receives a copy of the entries that have the make model and serial number of the stolen item along with the name of the originating agency. This allows Recipero to operate the FREE USA Trace system at www.tracechecker.com and also to search the information in their CheckMEND life history report service.

Guardian – UK Police get quicker stolen mobile phone check

The Guardian News paper has reported that Police officers have been given a faster method of checking whether a mobile phone has been stolen, with a new link between the National Mobile PropertyRegister (NMPR) and the Police National Computer (PNC).

The National Policing Improvement Agency (NPIA) has integrated the NMPR into the PNC. This will make it possible for officers on the beat to access the NMPR directly through their handheld devices.

Detective chief superintendent Mick McNally of the Metropolitan Police Territorial Policing Command said:

For the first time frontline officers can now obtain instantaneous results of searches on suspected stolen mobile phones.

The figures of 50,000 plus stolen phones a year being located and identified throughout the UK will further increase with this new Police National Computer facility. It sends a clear message to phone thieves that police and partners can identify stolen mobile phones in the hands of the thief or another individual.

The NPIA developed the integration with the help of Recipero the providers of the NMPR and Immobilise services which specialise in online compliance and due diligence software.

Recipero integrates NMPR with the UK Police National Computer

Recipero the UK based data organisation has announced today that it has successfully integrated access to its databases of information with the UK Police National Computer (PNC).

This is the culmination of nearly two years work following a decision from the UK Home Office that this would be beneficial to front line policing in the UK by helping to provide intelligence based around serial numbered goods associated with criminal activity.

Les Gray the IT Director of Recipero who lead the project said:

“This is a major achievement for us as a company as few private companies have ever achieved the accreditation required to allow this. It also reflects the value that the Police and the authorities place on the data we hold.”

Recipero awarded Secure Communities Network accreditation by the NPIA

Recipero is delighted to announce it has been awarded Secure Communities Network accreditation by the National Police Improvement Authority.

Accreditation has been achieved after months of auditing and testing of Recipero’s systems by independent security advisors appointed by the NPIA. This connection also enables a secure email path to recipero.scn.gov.uk through which Police and Government agencies may exchange classified information with Recipero.

Adrian Portlock CEO of Recipero said:

“this is a major milestone for Recipero and shows our commitment to the security and integrity of our services.
