Staff of the Security Division of IDGC of Centre strengthens the measures to combat theft at power facilities owned by the company, because illegal actions of individuals not only adversely affect the interests of the company, but also the interests of electricity consumers, undermining the integrity of the energy infrastructure. With acts of vandalism and theft at power facilities electrical equipment may fail for a long period.
The staff of the Security Division enhances the interaction with law enforcement agencies to respond quickly and make decisions for each case of theft. Thus, in the Kursk region in August this year the employee of the security service of Konyshevsky Distribution Zone V. I. Demenskov held detention of the former employee of Konyshevsky Distribution Zone A. I. Zhigulin, who had stolen a piece of equipment from a transformer substation. The thief was arrested in the yard of his house. During a search of the house parts of the substation equipment were also found.
The detention of the thief was a natural result of the work carried out by employees of the unit safety IDGC of Centre and the investigation team OMVD Alexis area. Currently, measures are being taken to bring Zhigulina AI accountable.
