Celebrating 25 Years of HEAT

It's been 25 years since the Help Eliminate Auto Theft (HEAT) program was established.
Since 1992, HEAT has been educating citizens and law enforcement about auto theft crimes and ways to prevent them from occurring in Virginia. Vehicle theft rates in Virginia have declined more than 60 percent since HEAT's inception, and more than 44,000 motor vehicle theft related arrests have been made.

Do you have information about a stolen vehicle or chop shop activity in Virginia? Submit a confidential tip, and if your tip leads to an arrest, you could receive a reward of up to $25,000.
