CICP - Construction Industry Crime Prevention

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 us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
