What is Combat Auto Theft (CAT)?
Simply CAT is an auto theft prevention program that alerts police that your vehicle is normally not driven between the hours of 1:00 A.M. and 5:00 A.M.
How does CAT work?
You complete and sign a CAT registration form. You are then given a CAT decal to be placed on the front and rear windshields of your vehicle. If the police see your vehicle during the program hours - they have permission to question the driver of your car to insure proper custody.
What does CAT cost?
There is no cost to you.
What if I want to register more than one car?
Each vehicle requires a separate registration form. Each vehicle in the CAT program receives it's own decals and identification number.
What if a friend borrows the car?
You must alert them that the vehicle might be stopped if driven during the CAT 1:00 A.M. to 5:00 A.M. period.
What if I need to use the car, and I am stopped?
You will be asked to produce a valid driver's license and proof of insurance card to verify ownership.
How do I withdraw from the CAT program?
It is easy. Send a completed CAT cancellation form to the East Point Police Department and completely remove the CAT decals. You must do this when you sell your car or transfer ownership.
Is the CAT program successful?
Although new in East Point, Georgia, CAT type programs are having an impact in New York, Texas, Virginia, Illinois, and other states. We know it will be successful in East Point as well!
Is CAT the best auto-theft prevention program?
CAT can have an impact, but it's just one way to reduce the chances of a car being stolen. We urge you to also use anti-theft devices, park in safe/secure areas and lock your car.
