This association was founded in the USA in 1952. Since 1989 we have a European Branch with members from 30 countries.
IAATI is a non-profit organization of both public and private professionals. The membership is made up from representatives of serving and retired police-officers, custom officers, insurance companies and their investigators, vehicle rental companies, car leasing companies, members of the vehicle licensing organizations, vehicle manufacturers, lawyers and many others with a legitimate professional interest in vehicle investigation, prevention and education.
Our officers, executive board and various committee chairs are elected from the general membership. Our most effective weapon to combat car crime related offences co-operation between all levels. Members of IAATI are not busy with combating car theft only, but also with other car or heavy equipment related crime.

We organize an annual meeting and because we have members in many countries of Europe, every year we select a country to host this seminar. These seminars as well as contact between the members provide the opportunity to network and keep up with the latest developments.
