On December 2, 2012, the owners of a 2008 Jeep Wrangler 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 Jeep.  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 Denver Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Wrangler 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 4400 block of Yates, where the vehicle was located in an alley.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Jeep Wrangler in March of 2008 at Burt Dodge Chrysler Jeep in Parker, Colorado. The total value of the recovery is estimated at $26,200.
