Copper Cable Theft - a Solution?

BT’s killer RABIT foils copper cable thieves...

Copper BT cable thieves were forced to flee the scene last month after police were alerted instantly during trials of a new security system launched nationwide today.

RABIT can detect when a cable has been cut or damaged and send police to the location within minutes of an incident.
It’s been deployed to deal with rising cable theft - mostly by organised gangs.

BT recovered 240 tonnes of stolen metal in the past 11 months, as a result of visits to scrap metal dealers and targeted Police operations.

Luke Beeson, general manager, BT Security, said: “BT’s new burglar alarm on the network will make thieves think again.

BT employs other security measures including SmartWater, an invisible paint that tags thieves and a BT Openreach partnership with Crimestoppers.
