CANTON, Mass. - LoJack Corp. is offering its stolen vehicle recovery system in New Mexico, and the company is looking for dealers to sell it. 

The largest law enforcement agencies in New Mexico, including the New Mexico State Police, Santa Fe Police Department and the Albuquerque Police Department, now have the ability to track and recover stolen motorcycles, cars, trucks, SUVs, heavy equipment and equipped with a LoJack stolen vehicle recovery system.

The company's expansion into New Mexico was initially requested by the New Mexico Automobile Dealers Association.

Dealers interested in becoming a participating LoJack stolen vehicle recovery system dealership may contact John Raber, regional vice president of sales at LoJack, at jraber@lojack.com or 424-278-2063. 

Albuquerque ranked 20th among the top locations nationwide for vehicle theft with more than 3,700 vehicles stolen in the city's Metropolitan Statistical Area in 2012. LoJack's presence in New Mexico will create a more comprehensive LoJack stolen vehicle recovery network and enhanced coverage along the Mexican border, a traditional hot spot for vehicle theft.

"After only days of service in the New Mexico market, LoJack is already having an impact assisting law enforcement to combat vehicle theft. In fact, the Albuquerque Police Department was alerted to a stolen car equipped with a LoJack stolen vehicle recovery system several hours after they were up and running with our network," said Patrick Clancy, vice president of LoJack Law Enforcement. "Serving as a testament to the LoJack System's seamless and instantaneous integration with law enforcement, the vehicle was recovered and returned to its rightful owner within three hours of it being reported stolen."

"We look forward to offering increased safety, security and protection for New Mexico vehicle owners and growing our relationship with New Mexico law enforcement," said Randy L. Ortiz, CEO and president of LoJack. "LoJack is proud to provide law enforcement agencies in New Mexico a turnkey solution to help increase their efforts in combating vehicle theft."

In late 2013, LoJack deployed the necessary infrastructure, including radio towers and police tracking computers, in the greater Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Las Cruces areas. Additionally, LoJack trained authorities at seven law enforcement agencies -- at no cost to the agencies or taxpayers, the company said -- on how to most effectively track and recover vehicles equipped with a LoJack System.
