ROSELLE—The Roselle Police Department announced Tuesday that they have been equipped with new Police Tracking Computers (PTCs) as a result of a donation by LoJack Corporation.
The additional equipment will enable the Roselle Police Department to expand the LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery Network in their area and combat local auto, motorcycle and commercial theft. The Police Tracking Computers installed in law enforcement vehicles are designed to receive silent signals emitted from a small radio transceiver hidden in a Lojack-equipped vehicle. Law enforcement vehicles with PTCs follow these signals, which lead to the stolen vehicle.
According to Chief Gerard Orlando, “With a 90% success rate in recovering stolen cars and trucks, the LoJack System is a time-tested radio frequency-based theft protection solution. It enables area law enforcement agencies that use PTCs to track down and recover not only LoJack-equipped cars, but trucks, motorcycles and construction equipment as well. In the 17 years we have been using LoJack, 12 stolen vehicles have been recovered.”
