Construction Site Thefts

The building boom that hit the Spokane - Coeur d'Alene region predictably generated more equipment and materials being left at construction sites. Inevitably, some of that equipment and material disappeared in the hands of thieves.

The US Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services, published Reducing Theft at Construction Sites: Lessons From a Problem-Oriented Project. This 56-page study was an effort to apply the principles of problem-oriented policing to one police district in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg, NC, area.
