Launch of Tracker Check speeds up recoveries

Tracker has launched a new service specifically designed to help the police trace and recover stolen vehicles quickly. Tracker Check gives officers direct web access to Tracker's own SVR information and has already led to Manchester police recovering a stolen Audi within 10 minutes.

The launch of Tracker Check means police officers picking up a signal from a stolen vehicle can view remotely any information Tracker stores on the vehicle and the circumstances of its theft. More significantly, once a stolen vehicle signal has been picked up, police can speed up the frequency of the signal, making tracking faster and easier.

"Previously, police had to telephone Tracker to request details of a stolen vehicle and then ask for the signal to be speeded up, as they got closer to its location," explains Stuart Chapman,

Tracker's police relationship manager. "Now police forces can simply log onto a secure web link to gain access to our own technology and do everything they need remotely.

"Thanks to Tracker Check, we have already seen one of our quickest recoveries ever, at 10 minutes from stolen to recovery. This new system is part of Tracker's ongoing commitment to helping the police crack down on vehicle theft. Not only does Tracker Check enhance the efficiency of our partnership with the police, but as this recent case shows, it is also much more effective."
