Catalytic Converter Theft Prevention Event

The Alhambra Police Department has partnered with Neil’s Express Automotive and Promax Motorsports to offer a Catalytic Converter Theft Prevention Event on Saturday, April 24th, from 8 AM to 12 PM at Neil’s Express Automotive (700 S. Garfield Ave.).
We invite Alhambra residents to bring their vehicles in to have their license plate numbers engraved onto their catalytic converters FREE of charge.
This event is one of the tools A.P.D. is implementing to help combat these crimes. We hope that it will work as a deterrent towards these thefts and help our department in these thieves' apprehension.
L.A.S.D.T.R.A.P. personnel will be available on-site to provide residents with V.I.N. etching to the windshield of your vehicle, vehicle theft information, and prevention tips.

Registration is required to participate. Please sign up as soon as possible on Event Bright, as appointments are limited.

To attend, you must bring your vehicle, your driver’s license, and a copy of your vehicle’s registration at your scheduled appointment time. If you have any questions, please contact the Crime Prevention Office at (626) 570-5177 or email at jcuchilla@alhambrapd.org.
Please read and sign the APD Release Liability Waiver and bring it with you to the event. If you do not have a printer, we will print the form for you to fill out at the event.
