Vehicle Recovery

The Vehicle Recovery team deals with all aspects of the recovery of private vehicles. The office is available to assist and advise officers and staff on all related matters. Staffordshire Police operate a vehicle removal scheme, whereby a number of recovery operators are selected to be on an approved list having complied with strict criteria in relation to vehicles, equipment, premises and personnel.

There are eight recovery operators on the approved list who have been allocated zones of operation for light recovery (vehicles under 3.5 tonnes gross vehicle weight), heavy recovery (vehicles over 3.5 tonnes g.v.w.) or both types of recovery. The approved recovery operators will recover any vehicle on behalf of the police from a stolen moped to a 38 ton artic on its side down a ditch. They have the correct equipment, vehicles, training and insurance for every eventuality.
