On November 15, 2012, the owners of an Acura Integra contacted the Denver Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen.
Denver Police verified the theft and entered the Acura’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 Denver Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Acura 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 300 block of East Dakota Avenue. There, they recovered the vehicle, valued at $4,325, and held it for safekeeping.
The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Acura Integra in October of 1998 in Massachusetts and the current owner was unaware that the car had LoJack.
