VIRTUAL SAFETY COUNCIL MEETING
CHP Cargo Theft Interdiction Program
Thursday, September 9, 2021
Don’t let the Grinch steal your Christmas, or your cargo. This will be a presentation from the CHP with information on cargo theft and security.
In January of 1994, Assembly Bill 813 was passed which provided funding to implement and maintain ongoing statewide cargo theft suppression efforts. The Cargo Theft Interdiction Program (CTIP) was created to combat the ever increasing cargo theft problem. Over the past decade the cost of cargo theft related crimes has risen dramatically. It is estimated that combined losses suffered by the trucking industry, insurance companies, and the railroads, surpasses $10 BILLION in the United States annually.
In response to concerns from the California Trucking Association (CTA) over this rising problem, Assembly Bill 1683 was enacted. This legislation created funding for the enhancement of cargo theft enforcement statewide, and designated the California Highway Patrol (CHP) to coordinate and implement the program.
