On Oct. 8,2012, the owners of a 2004 Dodge Stratus contacted the Denver Police Department to report that their vehicle had been stolen. 

The police verified the theft and entered the Dodge’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 with the Aurora Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Dodge with 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 area of Bayaud and Ironton.  There, they located the abandoned vehicle and safely returned it to the grateful owner.

The LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System was installed in this Dodge in August 2004 at Lithia Dodge of Cherry Creek in Aurora, Colorado.
