Grant Description
The Anti Car Theft Act of 1992 focused on deterring trafficking in stolen vehicles by strengthening law enforcement against auto theft (Title I), combating automobile title fraud (Title II), preventing "chop shop"-related thefts (Title III), and inspecting exports for stolen vehicles (Title IV). The National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS) was created under Title II of the Act, as amended, and codified at 49 U.S.C. 30501 et seq. In 1996, the Anti Car Theft Act was reauthorized and amended, transferring the responsibility for NMVTIS to the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). NMVTIS is designed to allow the states' titling agencies to instantly and reliably verify the information on a paper title with the electronic data from the state that issued the title. In addition, the system provides law enforcement with a tool to assist in reducing auto theft and vehicle title-related crimes. Where implemented, NMVTIS has already produced results, including time and cost savings, reductions in consumer wait time, decreases in motor vehicle thefts, improved recovery rate of stolen vehicles, increased ability to identify cloned vehicles prior to title issuance, and improved investigative abilities. See "NMVTIS Participation Program Specific Information" below for details on significant changes to this solicitation from prior years.
