Copper Wire Theft Prevention a Growing Concern

The primary driver to the increased need for copper wire theft prevention is the marked increase of copper costs over the past several years. Copper producing companies have not been able to supply the increased demand particularly in the US and China. Therefore, with the increased demand has come the increased theft of copper wire to sell for profit.

Some of the reasons that copper theft is on the rise include:
