About the Maryland/DC Anti Car Theft Committee
The Maryland/DC Anti Car Theft Committee (MD/DC ACT) is a non-profit 501c3 organization. We are dedicated to reducing auto theft in Maryland and the District of Columbia through support for law enforcement, the education of our citizens and the enactment of legislation that supports cost effective programs and laws that diminish auto theft.
MD/DC ACT is staffed completely with volunteers from our member companies. 100% of funds received from member companies goes directly to support ongoing programs. Our volunteers are presently from the auto insurance industry, with additional help coming from law enforcement agents, government agencies, the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) and the Maryland Vehicle Theft Prevention Council (MVTPC).
Founded in 1997 as the Maryland Anti Car Theft Committee, effective in February 2002, Maryland Anti Car Theft Committee expanded operations into the District of Columbia. By authority of the Board of Directions, the committee changed it's name to Maryland-Washington DC Anti Car Theft Committee, less formally known as MD/DC ACT.
The committee's future goals are expanded public awareness, providing for effective anti theft programs in conjunction with law enforcement and working effectively with Maryland and Washington, DC government agencies.
