The owners of a Honda Accord contacted the Salt Lake City Police Department to report that their vehicle was stolen. A police officer verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers which automatically activated the LoJack® System concealed in the Honda Accord.
Less than 9-minutes later officers with the Salt Lake City PD picked up the silent LoJack signal from the stolen Honda with the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) that are installed in patrol vehicles and aircraft. Following the directional and audible cues from the PTC, the officers tracked the Honda to the area of the 1300 block of West Wasatch. The Honda was found abandoned and was secured for the safe return to the owners.
The NCIC cancellation of the stolen vehicle report automatically shut off the silent LoJack signal in the Honda. LoJack is the only stolen vehicle recovery system that has this direct interface with NCIC and law enforcement.
The LoJack® System was installed in the Honda Accord 19-years ago at Honda Village in Newton, Massachusetts.
