TRAP's New Internet Site

LOS ANGELES POLICE DEPARTMENT
PRESS RELEASE
Tuesday, March 7, 2000


Los Angeles - The Taskforce for Regional Auto Theft Prevention (TRAP) is a Los Angeles County regional, multi-jurisdictional, multi-agency taskforce, which investigates, prosecutes, and deters vehicle theft and vehicle fraud on a coordinated and cooperative basis. It is authorized by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and administered through the Countywide Criminal Justice Coordinating Committee with cooperation from the Los Angeles County Chiefs of Police. TRAP is dedicated to informing the public about common auto theft schemes and recent investigations. As a result of this commitment, TRAP currently has two active Internet sites, which contain facts about how thieves and smuggling rings ply their illicit trade and their modus operandi.

It is TRAP's hope that the public will take advantage of this timely and late breaking information to protect themselves and their property through the information provided on the site.

The most recent addition to the sites is its interactive capabilities in which the public can now send anonymous information regarding auto theft activity or suspects in their community to TRAP. The purpose of this capability is to allow a free flow of information from the public to TRAP. TRAP will contact the sender via E-mail, only if requested by the sender.

On March 8, 2000, between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m., TRAP will host a demonstration of the websites' capabilities for the newsmedia. The demonstration will take place at TRAP Headquarters, 9040 Telstar Avenue, Suite 115, El Monte, CA., 626-572-5620.

For further inquiries, please contact Lieutenant A. Corella at 626-572-5620.
