On May 27, 2012, the owners of a 2002 Volvo, valued at $7,900, contacted the Denver Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen. Denver officers verified the theft and entered the vehicle’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Volvo.
A short while later, officers from the Denver Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Volvo with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) installed in their patrol vehicles. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack PTCs, the officers tracked the vehicle to the 1200 block of South Seneca Street. The vehicle was recovered and returned safely to the owner.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in this Volvo in November 2003 in California.
