Renewed Patriot Act includes cargo theft category

   The U.S. Patriot Act, just renewed by Congress, places a new classification category, cargo theft, into the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) program, a data collection system used by law enforcement agencies nationwide.

   'With cargo theft as a category unto itself in the Uniform Crime Reporting program, companies as well as law enforcement will be able to track and measure the full size and scope of the problem,' said Randy Mullett, chairman of the International Cargo Security Council's subcommittee for legislative affairs.

   'Once we get a more accurate portrayal of the seriousness of it, and can identify the major areas where cargo theft is taking place, we'll be able to better allocate the funds necessary to adequately ensure the security of the global supply chain,' Mullet explained.
