Find Out How GLOBALi Works

Car thieves know how GLOBALi works, and that is why GLOBALi is one of the top names in Canada when it comes to anti-theft measures. Criminals know exactly how to target a vehicle that best suits their needs. A visual deterrent means nothing to any thief unless that warning is also backed by a system that makes it more difficult to off-load stolen vehicle and parts. The program has two main components that make it most effective: the GLOBALi theft ID labels, and the Vehicle Registry & Recovery Network (VRRN).

Auto Theft Industry

Automotive theft costs Canadians upwards of 1.2 billion dollars a year. That breaks down to roughly four hundred cars a day or, one car every three minutes, being stolen. Most stolen vehicles are taken to chop shops, where they are disassembled and sold off as parts. Once parts have been removed from the stolen vehicle, it becomes very difficult to track their origins. One way to reduce the value of the stolen parts on the black market is the implementation of a system that would make identifying parts easier. When vehicles and parts can be tracked easily by law enforcement, they become unprofitable for criminals.

GLOBALi Theft Identification Labels

While GLOBALi theft Identification labels certainly act as a visual deterrent system to potential car thieves, their purpose is far more important than is initially evident. The unique theft ID labels are installed in ten strategic locations throughout the vehicle, some visible, some deeper within the vehicle body parts. All theft ID labels include a unique Theft Identification number. If a thief should manage to remove a label, the unique theft ID number will adhere to the vehicles' body part. The unique theft ID number is then only visible with a frequency specific ultra-violet light. Once identified by law enforcement the unique theft ID number can be searched in the GLOBALi Vehicle Registry & Recovery Network (VRRN) to trace it back to the true VIN of the vehicle.

GLOBALi Vehicle Registry & Recovery Network (VRRN)

A registration number alone is useless unless there’s a way to track it. The GLOBALi Vehicle Registry & Recovery Network (VRRN) is the largest network of its kind in North America, which makes identifying the true VIN of stolen vehicle and parts substantially easier. The VRRN is comprised of local law enforcement, dealerships, and vehicle owners and is used as a resource to help fight against auto theft. The VRRN is growing daily and has over 5 million registered vehicles in the network.
Now that you have a brief understanding of how GLOBALi works, it’s easy to see why car thieves would be wary of such an elegantly simple yet effective anti-theft system. GLOBALi is installed at car dealerships across Canada.
