Comprehensive identification of stolen goods with instant IMEI and property tracking
In Torbay, Apollo was used in conjunction with Hermes to identify stolen property, including mobile phones and laptop computers.
‘The overall success was measured by a near 80% reduction in offences of dwelling burglary in areas targeted, which wasn’t displaced to a neighbouring area. This reduction is still continuing over eighteen months later.’

Mobile phones and devices are owned and carried by more people than ever before. It only takes a second for a thief to strike.
By providing officers with the ability to identify stolen property immediately, Apollo is proven to act as a clear deterrent to both opportunistic thieves and serial offenders. Apollo technology also detects registered stolen goods, proving unlawful ownership and increasing the potential for their return to the rightful owners.
Apollo enables officers to carry out both large scale, strategically-planned investigations and smaller scale, instant spot checks on goods in the possession of known offenders, high street outlets and car boot markets, quickly and accurately.
When used at the scene of a complex investigation, Apollo provides officers with a powerful tool and the potential to gather sufficient evidence for immediate arrest. Apollo scans large quantities of goods in the possession of a suspect quickly, enabling them to be held in custody until further evidence is gathered.
Using an Apollo scanner to cross-check a phone’s IMEI or serial number of registered property can vastly reduce the time and manpower spent tracking ownership as well as eliminating human error. This, in turn, reduces the time spent on the radio for both officers and control staff and allows frontline offers to spend more time on the street. Apollo increases capacity and omits errors that can occur when checks are made manually.
