Dane County Sheriff’s Use Agency Collaboration and Digital Intelligence to Break Up Car Theft Ring
Collaboration and data sharing proved especially effective in the recent case of an ongoing car theft ring operating in the county. The thieves were taking advantage of people leaving their cars outside running for a few minutes to warm them up on winter mornings; after scouting for cars, the thieves simply hopped in and drove away.
Some criminals had even been bold enough to enter people’s homes and steal purses and car keys, an alarming and potentially dangerous escalation of their tactics.
Identify perpetrators of a car theft ring through coordination with neighboring law enforcement agencies – and without using tactics that could endanger the community.
