EHT POLICE USING LATEST TECHNOLOGY TO CURB VEHICLE THEFT
The police department is now equipped with tracking computers to combat vehicle theft.
The department demonstrated the LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery Network Wednesday morning, that was donated by the LoJack Corporation.
Four patrol cruisers are now equipped with a police tracking computer to locate and recover stolen cars, trucks, motorcycles, and construction equipment.
"With stolen vehicles speed is of the essence. The shorter time the officer has of recovering vehicle the quicker the vehicle will be recovered with less or no damage at all," says Phillip Rivoli, a law enforcement liaison for the LoJack Corporation.
There is a 90% recovery rate of stolen vehicles that are equipped with LoJack.
Residents can purchase the LoJack system for their car at participating auto dealerships or direct from the company.
