To help law enforcement agencies address catalytic converter theft, Carfax for Police has compiled a Catalytic Converter Replacement Report that identifies the most-targeted vehicles nationally, regionally, and by state. The data is based on Carfax service reports for catalytic converter replacements from more than 60,000 service shops across the country between January 2019 and the first three months of 2022.
In addition to the report, Carfax for Police is hosting a free event on Tuesday, June 7 at 1 PM ET: "Investigating Trends: Catalytic Converter Theft." This collaborative session will feature a panel of experts who will address the scope of the nationwide crisis, the vehicles most targeted for theft, best practices for marking programs, and provide real-world case studies.
“More than 81,000 law enforcement officers and analysts use our vehicle history data to solve crimes, so we talk to people on the frontlines every day. Catalytic converter theft is relentless and continues to be a major issue for our law enforcement partners,” commented Lt. Michael Ledoux (Ret), Carfax for Police director of business development. “Our goal, as always, is to provide tools that help law enforcement do their jobs better. We believe it is worthwhile to share these Carfax insights and facilitate a discussion as we all work toward better solutions.”
