Refreshments were provided by the Greater Los Angeles New Car Dealers Association in room 515 A&B on the second floor of the lobby between 0630 and 0700 hours.
The training was provided to allow auto theft investigators an opportunity to inspect new vehicle identification numbers, and interact with vehicle manufacturer's representatives.
YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT
A GOOD IDENTIFICATION NUMBER
YOU WILL NOT RECOGNIZE A BAD ONE"
This theory depicts the purpose and scope of the training day.
Some vehicle manufacturer's representatives were available during this event to provide assistance with the training by displaying their vehicles, providing verbal and/or printed information, and by answering questions. The show also provides an opportunity for manufacturer's representatives to interact with law enforcement officers and NICB agents to review current vehicle theft problems, security issues and trends.Please provide feedback regarding your experience at the training to NICB Special Agent Gabe Marquez or Mike Maleta. It will be used in preparing the next Training taking place in 2020.
