The Queensland Police Service is sharing its stolen vehicle database for everyone to access.
It claims sharing the data will “play a crucial role in assisting police in tracking down car thieves”.
Updated daily, the system categorises the vehicles by date of theft and includes additional information such as the year, make, model, and where and when the vehicle was stolen, as well as registration details.
The information is available within 28 days of the vehicle being reported stolen. You can access the database here.
“Information from the public plays a crucial part in investigations, and this gives the community greater tools to tell police the active movements of stolen vehicles and the actions of those behind the wheel,” said Queensland Police deputy commissioner Shane Chelepy.
“If you see a suspicious vehicle, members of the community can utilise this webpage, provide information to police and allow officers to take action.”
“The active stolen vehicle list has been about a year in the making and will be regularly reviewed and enhanced by our team, to make sure police can most effectively partner with the community,” said acting assistant commissioner of Organisational Capability Command, Paul Hart.
If a vehicle’s number plate is reported stolen or fake, the vehicle may not appear on the stolen vehicle list.
The Queensland Police encourages people who witness dangerous driving behaviour to call triple zero (000). If you witness any other suspicious behaviour, you can call Policelink on 131 444 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
