Hotline and Rewards Program:

Alert System:

The ALERTs also provide information about how thieves are getting onto jobsites, what items they are taking, and specific steps that contractors can implement to make their jobsites less vulnerable to criminal activity. Nearly 1000 people regularly receive CICP ALERTs. - this is a substantial number watching out for stolen property.  The ALERT system is also used to notify scrap metal recyclers about metal thefts. Law enforcement officers often use the system to distribute information about recovered items when the owner is not known.

Law Enforcement Partners

Partners in Crime Preventionprotocol

Since 1996, law enforcement agencies have been important partners in our work to reduce construction industry crimes. CICP's partnerships with law enforcement have resulted in contractors taking a more active role in preventing theft on their jobsites. When thefts do occur, CICP contractors actively participate in prosecutions. Law enforcement agencies are a critical link in this process.

CICP, OSP and the Portland Police Bureau have partnered to develop the Protocols for Selling Stolen Metals card for patrol officers and others investigating cases involving the selling of stolen metals. These laminated cards are available to patrol officers and deputies at no cost. To order these cards, contact the Karen Blythe at This email address is being protected from spambots.
