Early on the morning of July 23, 2012, the owners of a 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe contacted the Denver Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from their home during the previous night. 

Denver 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 Tahoe.  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, a trooper with the Colorado State Patrol was the first to pick up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Chevrolet with the LoJack Police Tracking Computer (PTC) installed in his patrol car. Arvada officers responding to the LoJack signal quickly located the stolen SUV on 56th Avenue, where it had been abandoned by the thieves.

The LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System was installed in this Chevrolet Tahoe in March 2002 at Burt Chevrolet.  The factory GPS installed in this vehicle was of no value to the police or the vehicle owner, as the subscription service had lapsed long ago.  The LoJack, however, remains viable to be activated for the life of the vehicle, at no additional cost.
