CANTON, Mass., Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --LoJack Corporation(NASDAQ:
LOJN), a provider of vehicle theft recovery and advanced fleet management
solutions, today announced the immediate availability of its Stolen Vehicle
Recovery System in New Mexico. 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 cars, trucks, SUVs, heavy equipment and motorcycles 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.

Albuquerque ranked 20^th among the top locations nationwide for vehicle theft
with more than 3,700 vehicles stolen in the city's Metropolitan Statistical
Area (MSA) in 2012.[1] LoJack's presence in New Mexico will create a more
comprehensive LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery Network in the U.S. and enhanced
coverage along the Mexican border, a traditional hot spot for vehicle theft.

"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."

"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 wasalerted toa stolen car equipped with a
LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System several hours after they were up and
running with our network," reports Patrick Clancy, Vice President
ofLoJackLaw Enforcement. "Servingas 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. Without the LoJack System and the quick work of the
Albuquerque Police Department, this car may have been headed towards
theMexican border or a local chop shop to be sold off inpieces."

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 – on how to
most effectively track and recover vehicles equipped with a LoJack System.

More than 90 percent of stolen cars, trucks andSUVs equipped with the LoJack
Stolen Vehicle Recovery System have been recovered, with more than 300,000
vehicles and pieces of heavy equipment recovered worldwide, totaling nearly $4
billion in assets. The LoJack System will enable local and regional law
enforcement agencies the ability to offer a new level of vehicle theft
protection to residents. LoJack created its Stolen Vehicle Recovery System
specifically to operate within the processes and procedures of law
enforcement, providing a highly effective, turnkey method for system
activation and asset recovery.

Howthe LoJack System Works
The LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System includes a small wireless
radio-frequency transceiver that is hidden in a vehicle; and Police Tracking
Computers (PTCs) that are installed in police cars, helicopters and fixed-wing
aircraft. Once the vehicle is reported stolen to the police, the vehicle's
identification number is matched to the LoJack System's registration number by
state and national law enforcement computers. After the match, the LoJack
System is activated by police, which causes the small, hidden radio
transceiver in the vehicle to emit a silent, continuous signal. Law
enforcement vehicles and aircraft equipped with LoJack PTCs follow these
signals, which can lead to the precise location of the stolen vehicle. The
better than 90 percent recovery rate for stolen cars, trucks and SUVs equipped
with the LoJack System has translated over the years into nearly $4 billion in
recovered assets worldwide.
