On November 12, 2012, the owners of a Chevrolet Venture contacted the Denver Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen. 

Denver Police verified the theft and entered the Chevrolet’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 Venture 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 1700 block of West 35th Avenue.  There, they recovered the abandoned vehicle and held it for safekeeping until it could be returned to the grateful owners.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Chevrolet Venture in June of 2003 at Burt Chevrolet in Englewood, Colorado.
