Our Mission

IAATI North Central Regional Chapter

Welcome to the NCRC!

The North Central Regional Chapter (NCRC) of the International Association of Auto Theft Investigators (IAATI) was formed in 1972 when then Illinois State Police Captain Clyde Oliver, who was also IAATI’s secretary, petitioned for recognition as a regional chapter.

Today our members come from local state and federal law enforcement as well as insurance companies and related fields with the common goal to suppress vehicle theft and related crimes. The NCRC officers, executive board and various committee members are all elected from the general membership and are professionals from all aspects of the auto theft investigative field.
