Frequently Asked Questions

When should I report a crime?

At the time of the incident. WHEN YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING. This way officers can respond while the crime is occuring. 

Why are VIN inspections required by the State of Kansas?

To protect consumers, discourage auto theft, and prevent the trafficking of stolen auto parts, the Motor Vehicle Enforcement (MVE) program conducts inspections on certain vehicles before they receive a Kansas title and registration. 

Statistics from the Federal Bureau of Investigation indicate that nearly 1.2 million vehicles, costing more than $7.5 billion dollars, are stolen nationwide each year. More than 30% of these stolen vehicles are never recovered.

What are the circumstances in which a VIN inspection is required?

Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) Inspections are required in Kansas if:

  • A vehicle has a title from a state other than Kansas or a foreign country
  • A vehicle has been assembled, reconstructed, reconstituted, or restored from 1 or more vehicles
  • The proper identification number of a vehicle is in doubt

This inspection must be completed before the Kansas Department of Revenue will issue a license tag or title for the vehicle.

The VIN inspections are conducted by trained law enforcement personnel employed by the Kansas Highway Patrol or designated law enforcement agencies across the state.
