Fair Lawn police working to end catalytic converter thefts; prevention pilot program in the works

Police in Fair Lawn are working to put an end to catalytic converter thefts -- a new program would allow residents to have their converters etched and registered.
If enough people are interested, the program will move forward.
According to officials, the crimes are on the rise across the state.
CARFAX says the most frequently stolen converters come from these trucks and cars: 1984 - 2022 Ford F series trucks, 1988 - 2018 Honda Accords and 2007 - 2017 Jeep Patriots.
