Deceangi Posted July 8, 2011 Share Posted July 8, 2011 Due to the Wetherby Geocache Incident, as part of a project between the GAGB, The UK & Ireland Reviewers aided by Groundspeak. To contact all Police Forces in the UK, in regards to Geocaching in their Force Areas. A initial approach was made to the ACPO-Association of Chief Police Officers, from initial feedback received. The GAGB after discussions with the Reviewers have produced the following Urban Caching Guideline “Urban caches should be placed to minimise the chance of security alerts. It is essential that micros and larger are marked externally as a geocache with the relevant listing site reference (eg: GCxxxxxx, OXxxxxxx or OCxxxxxx). Containers larger than 35mm containers should have clear sides to enable inspection without opening. Cache pages must contain the following wording: This cache meets the GAGB Urban Placement Guidelines” Moving forward all caches submitted in Urban areas, will be required to comply with this Guideline. More information can be found here Here Currently Active caches in Urban Areas, will as per usual be Grandfathered In. But it is hoped that these cache owners will adjust their caches to comply with the Guideline Deceangi Volunteer UK Reviewer Quote Link to comment
