ATAC Award

The four recipients of the ATAC Awards were Officer Alex Lopez, who recovered 14 stolen vehicles; Officer Roland Perez, who recovered 16 stolen vehicles; Officer Christopher Doan, who recovered 20 stolen vehicles; and Officer Dan McCarthy, who recovered 26 stolen vehicles.

This year the four officers from Westminster Police Department had recovered a combined total of 76 stolen cars, which equaled over $500,000 in property loss, and arrested 30 individuals related to the 76 recovered vehicles.
The Auto Theft Advisory Committee or ATAC is a partnership between law enforcement, insurance companies and auto related companies to reduce auto theft.  Each year they honor officers from each agency who have excelled in locating stolen vehicles.
