New HPD Site to Help Citizens "Find My Towed Car"
Houston Police Chief Charles A. McClelland Jr. announced on Oct. 20 the launch of a new tool that will help the public, HPD personnel and storage lot operators determine where vehicles are stored in the event their vehicle is towed from a location, otherwise known as a non-consent tow.
The new website, www.findmytowedcar.com, provides access to information pertaining to vehicles stored as a result of non-consent tows.
This new system is more time efficient, allows the general public to make inquiries into missing vehicles without repeated phone calls, and the receipt and release of vehicles can be tracked by storage lot owners electronically and in real-time.
Chief McClelland explains how important this new technology is to HPD and the citizens of Houston at: http://www.youtube.com/user/houstonpolicedept#p/u/0/84YrNJCfA8Q.
