On September 14, 2012, the owners of a 2000 Jeep Cherokee contacted the Denver Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen.
Denver Police verified the theft and entered the Jeep’s information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the vehicle. 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 from the Lakewood Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Jeep on the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) that are installed in 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 the 7300 block of West Hampden Avenue. They located the abandoned vehicle, and secured it for return to the owner.
The LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Jeep in January 2003 at GO Chrysler Jeep in Littleton, Colorado.
