Share intelligence about illegal activity involving utility systems

Control Measure Knowledge

Fire and rescue services engage in a wide range of intelligence-sharing opportunities through normal activities. They should use these to build a picture of possible properties or locations where illegal activity involving utility systems may occur.

Local intelligence can come from a number of sources, including:

  • Police
  • Local authorities
  • Utility suppliers
  • Community leaders
  • Local knowledge of operational personnel
  • Members of the public

During normal fire and rescue service activities, personnel may come across situations where there has been suspected illegal activity involving utility systems. These instances will need to be reported to the United Kingdom Revenue Protection Association and the police.
