LoJack Celebrates Stolen Vehicle Recovery Milestone

April 01, 2016 - Press Release

LoJack Corporation has recovered more than 200,000 vehicles in the U.S., and plans to celebrate the achievement by honoring the Los Angeles Police Department at an event on March 30 at Galpin Motors in North Hills, Calif.

The milestone is highlighted by the recovery of a 2015 Ford Escape on Jan. 12. The vehicle was stolen from a local residence in West Los Angeles. Because it was equipped with a LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery Unit that was pre-installed by Galpin Motors, it was tracked and recovered by the LAPD in 17 minutes and returned to its owner. At the event, LoJack will commend the efforts of key members of the LAPD for leading the charge against auto theft.

LoJack was founded to help law enforcement agencies track and recover stolen vehicles, while making officer safety a top priority. With the LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System, officers are able to quickly track and recover stolen assets – reducing the impact that theft has on businesses, commercial entities and consumers.

"We've made tremendous strides by aiding police officers and helping them recover stolen vehicles, but there is still work to be done," said Hal Dewsnap, senior vice president and general manager of LoJack. "Today we are dealing with a more sophisticated and connected vehicle thief. In fact, preliminary FBI data for 2015 shows an increase in theft from previous years. As we celebrate this milestone, we are reminded that auto theft is changing and we need to continue to innovate and adapt our technology to stay ahead of advanced thieves."
