If you’ve never heard of Nlets, you have certainly been its unknowing beneficiary. Nlets was created more than 50 years ago by America’s 50 state law enforcement agencies, and is now the premiere interstate justice and public safety network in the nation for the exchange of law enforcement, criminal justice, and public safety information. Their system provides unrivaled reliability based on a network built to endure threats without impacting performance.
Each quarter, Nlets honors an organization with whom they align to promote innovation and excellence within the criminal justice and public safety community. Their current “Partner of the Quarter” is Locator Technologies LLC – the engine behind eimpound.com.
Locator Technologies, launched in 1997 and an Nlets strategic partner since 2017, operates a vast database that monitors more than 36 million vehicles for adverse events such as impounds, exports, title transfer requests, parking violations, lien sale applications, etc. More than 3,000 lenders and many insurers participate in Locator's database.
Locator does not charge law enforcement for access to their vehicle lien holder and owner database. Through their eimpound.com website, more than one thousand tow yards, municipalities, and other operators of impound lots can also access the data free-of-charge.
Currently, Locator Technologies is working with Nlets to maximize the value of the eImpound database to Nlets users. The availability of eImpound.com means that Nlets users who want to contribute to and participate in Nlets’ national impound database do not need to invest their own money to develop a new computer application. eImpound is ready to go and available to serve them at no cost.
eImpound is constantly working on new and better ways for law enforcement, tow operators and others to communicate regarding vehicles of interest. They invite all users to offer recommendations for making eImpound their chosen “Partner” for years to come.
