About LandyWatch

LandyWatch is a growing network of Land Rover owners whose aim is to assist in the recovery of stolen Land Rovers and suggest ways to make our vehicles a less attractive target to thieves.    

Working with the Police and security product manufacturers, it's much like the neighbourhood watch idea but for Land Rovers.

We rely on our members' "eyes and ears" and we will become more effective as membership grows. With this in mind, it would be great if you could take the time to check out LandyWatch and hopefully join our forum. It's free to register and only takes a few mins.

You will also find us on Twitter and Facebook.     @Landywatch on Twitter and search for the LandyWatch group on Facebook.

LandyWatch is neither connected to nor affiliated in any way to Land Rover

Incidents reported on LandyWatch this year


All incidents reported on LandyWatch from February 2011



Police force recorded cumulative Defender theft details


Please note :

The above charts are based on cumulative data supplied by individual police forces in response to a request made to all forty four UK forces in early January 2015 under the Freedom of information (FOI) act.    A number of forces assessed that they would be unable to provide the requested data within the 'reasonable' time/cost constraints set out in the FOI act and so provided very limited or no data at all.

It has become apparent that there are different crime data capture systems by force.  Some of which appear easier to interrogate than others.   Some forces have had to manually 'sense check' the data from their database searches.  All of the foregoing may lead to some reporting inaccuracies in the data.   As a consequence, LandyWatch does not warrant or endorse this data as being a wholly accurate reflection of the historic patterns around Land Rover Defender thefts in the UK and should be taken simply a guide.    Any reliance on this information is done so at your own risk.    

As at 6/2/15 - Data from 18 forces has yet to be either received or added to the comparison.
