In Reply to: Lojack or ? for my trailer posted by drbbq on May 19, 2010 at 20:17:29:
Lo Jack is great, but not perfect. You may want to invest in physical security devices, such as tire/rim locks in addition to a device like Lo Jack. The police do not automatically activate Lo Jack. You have to file a police report, then that number is provided to Lo Jack to activate the system. Our department only has Lo Jack recovery scanners in two patrol units, out of our entire fleet. Although most agencies do have Lo Jack recovery scanners, not all patrol cars have them installed. It seems that the public's perception is that all cop cars have Lo Jack and are lead right to the stolen car. Once a Lo Jack hit is made, it must be confirmed, then you get the stolen vehicles description and information. Then you have to try and locate the stolen vehicle with direction finders on the scanner, most of the times while the stolen vehicle is in motion. Often a visual security device is deterrent is enough to keep a thief away. I use wheel locks on my trailer. No matter what you choose, you certainly do need some form of vehicle security.
