Cambridgeshire Constabulary continues to work with the British Oil Security Syndicate (BOSS) and petrol retailers to target bilkers. A guide to assist forecourt staff to reduce the amount of bilking has been distributed to members across the county.

In addition, a pack was issued to participating garages, with the support of BOSS, which includes Forecourt Watch materials as well as providing crime prevention information and the reporting and recording of forecourt crime.
