Montgomery County Police posted the following message on their Facebook page:
With the recent spike in auto thefts across the county, the Montgomery County Police 4th District Station is offering the residents within its district, an opportunity to participate in the Auto Theft Prevention Initiative.
Officers will install a Tile device in the registered owner’s vehicle, which can be used as an aid to assist law enforcement officials with locating a vehicle in the event it is stolen. Montgomery County Police officers will not have the ability to track the Tile device. It will be up to the registered owner of the vehicle, to provide location information to officers should their vehicle be stolen.
Those individuals interested in participating in the program should read and familiarize themselves with the terms and conditions to participate in the program. In addition, they should check the maps provided below to ensure they reside in the area, for which the services will be provided. The areas were chosen based on statistical data that showed the highest numbers of auto thefts in the district.
Further, participants will need to book their appointment online. Appointments are available Mondays and Wednesdays from 3pm-7pm and Fridays and Sundays from 11am- 3pm.
Any questions or concerns should be directed to: Sergeant Enendu
@ firstname.lastname@example.org or call 240-773-5581.
