On Wednesday December 06, 2006 law enforcement vehicle theft investigators and NICB agents were allowed to enter the Los Angeles Auto Show being held at the Los Angeles Convention Center from 0630 hours to 1100 hours for vehicle identification training.  

It was the seventeenth annual law enforcement training day, sponsored by Toyota, the National Insurance Crime Bureau and the Los Angeles Police Department, CCDCATs.  Refreshments were provided by Toyota and the NICB in the West Hall lobby between 0630 and 0730 hours.   

The training is provided to allow vehicle theft investigators an opportunity to inspect new vehicle identification numbers.  The theme "IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT A GOOD IDENTIFICATION NUMBER LOOKS LIKE, YOU WON'T RECOGNIZE A BAD ONE" reflects the purpose and scope of the training. 

Location: Los Angeles Convention Center, West Hall entrance

NICB Special Agent Ken Hutchison welcomed the early morning crowd to the Convention Center.  Ken opened his remarks by acknowledging all that assisted with putting together the 17th annual event.  Ken also acknowledged several other people who assisted in making the training possible. 

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 either Mark Winter or Ken Hutchison.  It will be used in preparing the next Training taking place in 2007.  If you have any questions, or need additional information, please contact Mark Winter, NICB, at e-mail address mwinter@nicb.org or telephone number 909-625-1025, or Ken Hutchison, NICB, at email address khutchison@nicb.org or telephone number 916-685-2971.
