On March 6, 2012, the owners of a 2001 Jeep Wrangler discovered that their vehicle had been stolen and immediately reported the theft to the Denver Police Department.

Denver officers completed a stolen vehicle report and had the Jeep’s information entered into the state and federal crime computers. This routine police action automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed within in the Jeep. Neither the owners nor law enforcement agents had to take any further action to initiate police tracking of the vehicle, as LoJack’s interface with the police is both seamless and instantaneous.

Minutes later, officers with the Sheridan Police Department received the Jeep’s silent homing on the LoJack Police Tracking Computers (PTC) installed in their patrol cars. Following the visual and audible cues from the PTC, the officers quickly tracked the stolen Nissan to South Green Court, where it was safely recovered for return to the owner.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Jeep Wrangler eleven years ago at the owner’s request.
