Auto Thefts in Michigan Continue to Decline

TSM

The Michigan State Police say auto thefts in Michigan are continuing to decline. In a news release from the MSP, they point to the Michigan Automobile Theft Prevention Authority (ATPA) annual report that shows a decrease of .03 percent from 2011 to 2012. The annual report can be found at www.michigan.gov/atpa.

Since the inception of the ATPA in 1986, auto thefts in Michigan have decreased by over 65 percent. Dan Vartanian, Executive Director of the ATPA, says the “success in the battle against auto theft is the direct result of the dedication and efforts of 110 men and women who are funded by grants awarded to the ATPA to Michigan law enforcement agencies, prosecuting attorney’s offices and nonprofit community organizations.”

The most stolen vehicle in Michigan during 2012 was a 2000 Dodge Caravan. It was followed by 2005 Chevrolet Impala, 2012 Chevrolet Malibu, 1999 Ford Taurus and 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix.
