On December 27, 2012, the owners of a 2007 Jeep Liberty 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 SUV.  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 and other area agencies, picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Jeep with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) installed in their patrol vehicles. The LoJack PTC provides officers with on-board information that enables 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 Denver officers tracked the Jeep to the area of 3000 South Federal Boulevard, where they recovered the Jeep and arrested one juvenile suspect.  The Jeep was towed for processing and will be released to the owner.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in this Jeep Liberty at the request of this same owner in July 2009. The approximate value of the recovered vehicle is $9,750.
