AT THE TIME OF THE INCIDENT !
WHEN YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING.
To protect consumers, discourage auto theft, and prevent the trafficking of stolen auto parts, the Motor Vehicle Enforcement (MVE) program conducts inspections on certain vehicles before they receive a Kansas title and registration.
Statistics from the Federal Bureau of Investigation indicate that nearly 1.2 million vehicles, costing more than $7.5 billion dollars, are stolen nationwide each year. More than 30% of these stolen vehicles are never recovered.
Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) Inspections are required in Kansas if:
This inspection must be completed before the Kansas Department of Revenue will issue a license tag or title for the vehicle.
The VIN inspections are conducted by trained law enforcement personnel employed by the Kansas Highway Patrol or designated law enforcement agencies across the state.
