Auto Theft Prevention for Consumers
The Minnesota Commerce Fraud Bureau Auto Theft Prevention Program collaborates with local law enforcement in efforts to engage consumers - Minnesota drivers, owners, passengers and others - to take actions to help prevent auto theft. Increases in auto theft contribute to rising premiums for auto insurance policies.
