What's New?

July is National Vehicle Theft Prevention Month

"Grand Theft Auto" is not fun if it happens to you. Take steps to prevent your car from being stolen, but if you are one of the unlucky ones, know that you have rights. If your car is found, the law enforcement agency that recovers your vehicle must notify you within 48 hours after recovering the vehicle or receiving notification that the vehicle has been recovered. In addition, victims can seek assistance with paying for towing and impound fees from the Minnesota General Crime Victim Services Program.
