On August 8, 2012, visitors to Denver from Florida were shocked to discover their 2007 Honda Accord stolen. They reported the crime to the Denver Police Department who verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers. This action automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Honda.
A short while later, officers with the Denver Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Accord on the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) 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 PTCs the officers tracked the vehicle to Colfax and Cleveland Place, where the vehicle was safely recovered and returned to the owners.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Honda Accord in May of 2007 at Coggin Honda in Orlando, Florida.
