Denver Police Department have a programme called DenverTrack
which is a data-driven approach to reducing vehicle crime. So how does it work? It works with vehicles’ GPS system so they can track stolen cars in real time. Vehicle owners in the Denver area with GPS will need to pre-authorise the Denver Police Department to access the manufacturer’s GPS service. This means that if the vehicle is taken then the owner can request the Police to track the vehicle’s whereabouts in real time. Participants will be given a sticker for their car, which hopefully in itself is a visual deterrent to opportune thieves.
