On July 24, 2012, the owners of a Chevrolet truck contacted the Northglenn Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen. The police verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the truck. 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 Lakewood Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Chevrolet with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) that are installed in patrol vehicles. 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 PTC’s the officers tracked and recovered the truck. It was secured for the safe return to the owners.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Chevrolet pickup truck in 1999 at O’Reilly Autoplex Mitsubishi in Tucson, Arizona.
