Eight LoJack Police Tracking Computers will be added by the Long Beach Police Department to its fleet.
The computers, which were provided by Henry Caruso, the owner of Pacific Ford, are aimed to enhance Long Beach's stolen vehicle recovery capabilities.
They will be installed in Long Beach Police Department vehicles and will receive silent signals emitted from a small radio tranceiver hideen in a LoJack-equipped vehicle. The signals will then direct officers to stolen cars, trucks and vans.
"This partnership [with LoJack] provides a measureable benefit to the community, by fighting crime and making our streets safer without spending additional City funds," Mayor Bob Foster said.
Long Beach Police Chief, Jim McDonnell, added, "We're always looking to maximize our ability to locate stolen vehicles and partnering with Pacific Ford affords us the opportunity to increase our number of LoJack equipped vehicles to 35, at no cost to the taxpayers."
