Turn Up the HEAT® Week!

 October 14-20, 2012

WHAT: Turn Up the H.E.A.T. Week is dedicated to educating the public on auto theft prevention, and encouraging citizens to report what they may know about auto theft-related crimes in their neighborhoods. Turn Up the H.E.A.T. Week coincides with celebrations for Help Eliminate Auto Thefts’ anniversary in October.

WHO: H.E.A.T. is a partnership between Michigan’s auto insurance companies, law enforcement and residents of Michigan. The H.E.A.T. program encourages citizen action through a 24/7 confidential, toll-free tip line (1-800-242-H.E.A.T.) and website (www.1800242HEAT.com). Tipsters can receive up to $10,000 for providing information leading to the arrest and prosecution of individuals for auto theft, auto theft-related insurance fraud and identity theft, carjacking, theft rings and chop shops.

WHY: Over the years, Michigan residents have helped H.E.A.T. recover millions in stolen property and assisted in the arrests of nearly 3,500 suspects of auto theft-related crimes. By partnering with H.E.A.T., Michigan residents can help to keep their neighborhoods safer and insurance rates lower.

Thanks for helping to make Michigan a safer place to live! I will be telling all of my friends!"
