The Colorado Auto Theft Prevention Authority (CATPA) has just released its list of the top ten stolen vehicles in our state. In an effort to prevent more auto thefts in our area, the Brighton Police Department received steering wheel immobilizers, more commonly known as “clubs,” from the Colorado Metropolitan Auto Theft Task Force (C-MATT).
These clubs are now available at the Brighton Police Department, 3401 E. Bromley Lane, and are free to the driving public. When used properly, these clubs will prevent your vehicle from being stolen.
If you drive one of the following vehicles you are encouraged to stop by the police department and get a free club:
• Chevrolet Silverado (1999-2009)
• Ford F-250 (1999-2006)
• Honda Civic (1994-2000)
• Honda Accord (1990-1997)
• Dodge Ram (2001-2005)
• Ford F-150 (1997-2001, 2010-2018)
• Toyota Camry (2007-2014)
• Ford F-350 (1999-2007)
• Subaru Impreza (2002-2007)
• GMC Sierra (1999-2008)
In order to receive a free club, drivers will need to fill out an information card. This card requires vehicle owners to provide the VIN number to C-MATT so it can determine the effectiveness of the clubs as theft-deterrent devices.
