Understanding the complexities and finding solutions to address auto theft have been primary concerns of policing services, government partners, manufacturers, and insurance industry stakeholders.

The Auto Theft Summit 2024 held on Wednesday, March 20 was a joint initiative led by police services across Ontario to identify and address the vulnerabilities in auto theft beyond enforcement actions. In alignment with last year’s summit recommendations, the goal of the 2024 Auto Theft Summit was to expand further and explore new, concrete ideas to tackle this problem impacting Ontario and its communities.
