President’s Welcome Message

Welcome CATI Members;

I appreciate the opportunity to again lead our organization into a bright future. I would like to that thank immediate past President Chris Tyus and his enlightened leadership over the past year. Robert Force, of the Colorado Auto Theft Prevention Authority, has worked with Chris and CATI to prepare CATPA for the upcoming “Sunset Review”. CATPA has the full support of CATI and the International Association of Auto Theft Investigators (IAATI) as they prepare for the program review by the Colorado State legislature. The “Sunset Review” is a critical point for CATPA, CATI and the citizens of Colorado who rely on our efforts to prevent and control motor vehicle crimes. CATI along with CATPA are recognized internationally for the cutting-edge public educational programs, operational standards and training we provide to our membership and the public.

Next, I would like to welcome to the CATI board Beth Daniel (Wheat Ridge PD) who assumes the position of Treasurer and Sean Templeton (Lakewood PD) who assumes the position of 2 nd Vice President. I would like to thank Scott Mehle (Westminster PD) for his years of dedicated service to the CATI board and our membership as our organization continued to grow.

CATI’s future is bright as we initiate new training programs and assist other states in organizing state auto theft organizations such as CATI. CATI will continue to lead the way in motor vehicle crimes prevention and investigations.


William (Bill) Johnson

Mission Statement

The purpose of this Association is to unite the public, law enforcement and insurance industry investigators, who are concerned with the prevention and investigation of motor vehicle thefts and kindred crimes; to promote the exchange of investigative information; and to create a forum for better communication among investigators in Colorado, the Rocky Mountain Region, and the Nation.

CATI is a nonprofit organization as described under Section 501(C)(6) of the Internal Revenue Service Code. As such, CATI’s tax returns are available for public inspection.
