17th March 2011 Print

It has been a busy start to the year for TRACKER, the stolen vehicle recovery specialists, with 103 stolen vehicles recovered in January. TRACKER's latest theft bulletin shows that it helped police recover £1,852,399 worth of stolen vehicles, closing the net on criminals.

The most valuable vehicle recovered was an Audi Q7 worth, £60,000, which was stolen in Hertfordshire. Another Audi, which was stolen from the Stockport area, was recovered in less than an hour, demonstrating the vital level of protection offered by TRACKER's state-of-the-art tracking units, which help recover vehicles swiftly - usually within 24 hours. By far the most common vehicle make recovered was BMW, with 51 in total throughout January.

"Once again, TRACKER's success speaks for itself, with police making 15 arrests, as a result of our devices leading officers to the location of stolen vehicles," says Stephen Doran, managing director of TRACKER. "In the process of tracking the stolen vehicles fitted with TRACKER units, 14 other stolen vehicles were discovered - highlighting the role TRACKER plays in fighting crime. We continue to play a key role in helping police bring criminals to justice, illustrating the power of our relationship with police forces across the UK. Without TRACKER devices installed, many of these vehicles would have been lost for good, highlighting their importance in the fight against car theft."

Operated by all 52 police forces, TRACKER can inform the police of the initial location of the stolen vehicle who can then employ the precision of the VHF technology to track a stolen vehicle to its exact location. Crucially, TRACKER will be alerted to an attempt to jam any of its system's communication channels. In addition, TRACKER's stolen vehicle recovery units are approved by Thatcham TQA, a verification programme of the quality, design and performance of automotive aftermarket devices.
