On July 22, 2012, the owners of a 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe, valued at $16,200, contacted the Commerce City Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen. The police 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 SUV.  LoJack is the only theft recovery system that is directly operated by law enforcement and this interface is seamless and instantaneous.

A short while later, officers with the Denver Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Tahoe with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC’s) that are installed in police patrol vehicles and aircraft.  The LoJack PTC provides officers with on-board information which permits them to locate the stolen vehicle quickly and with an increased margin of safety.

Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack PTCs, the officers tracked the vehicle to 2300 block of West Tennessee Avenue, where they recovered the stolen Tahoe.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in this Chevrolet Tahoe in December 2009 at GO Chevrolet in Denver, Colorado.
