On February 8, 2013, the owners of a 2005 Nissan Xterra contacted the Denver Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen from the street.

Denver Police verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Xterra.  LoJack is the only theft recovery system that is directly operated by law enforcement and this interface is seamless and instantaneous.

Minutes later, officers with the Denver Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals from the stolen Nissan 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 200 block of East 7th Avenue. There, they recovered the vehicle for the owners, who incidentally, were unaware that their vehicle had been equipped with LoJack at the request of the vehicle’s original owner in 2006. The Xterra was valued at approximately $9,000.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in this Nissan Xterra in September of 2006 at Boulder Nissan in Boulder, Colorado.
