North Texas Auto Theft Task Force
The North Texas Auto Theft Task Force (NTATTF) consists of experienced auto theft, auto burglary and insurance fraud detectives that strive to reduce auto thefts, auto burglaries and insurance fraud by acting as a liaison for other law enforcement agencies to identify theft patterns and develop intelligence that leads to prosecution and restitution from those responsible. The areas that are covered in Dallas County consist of four major highways that can lead anyone across the country. They are north and southbound Interstate 35 and Interstate 45, as well as east and westbound Interstate 20 and Interstate 30. These areas are prime targets for auto theft and their related crimes in Texas.

The NTATTF is funded by grants that are awarded to different agencies through the Texas Burglary and Automobile Theft Prevention Authority (ATPA). The general fund was established by legislation that requires the collection of a $1.00 premium annually on each vehicle insurance policy issued in Texas. The fee is assessed of all agencies insuring vehicles in Texas, and is collected for ABTPA by the Texas Comptroller of public accounts.
