Many counties have come together to try to combat auto and trailer theft and the new task force will be in action starting tomorrow helping to stop the theft of cars and trailers.
The new auto theft prevention team will be made up of 16 area counties and the force is designed to improve communication between counties to better recover stolen property.
NewsChannel 10 spoke with Fritch Police Chief Monte Leggett who says this new force is helpful to smaller police stations which don't have the resources to devote to finding the stolen cars or trailers.
Leggett also says "we're a small city with limited resources, limited officers and we take any help we can. we want to cooperate with all the counties that are involved to help deter any kind of theft."
