The Office for National Statistics publish estimates, sourced from the Crime Survey for England and Wales, on catalytic converter theft. However, being based on a sample survey it is not possible to produce reliable estimates at local authority level.

The Government is committed to tackling the theft of catalytic converters and is working closely with police and motor manufacturers through the National Vehicle Crime Working Group to bear down on this crime. The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) is represented on the National Vehicle Crime Working Group.
