The Auto Pound Coordinator/Auto Theft Recovery Officer is responsible for assigning abandoned vehicle complaints and processing impounded, abandoned and recovered stolen vehicles. During FY 2020, the Auto Pound Coordinator processed over 1,500 vehicles.

The Auto Pound Coordinator Unit routinely tags and removes junked, nuisance and abandoned vehicles from city streets, alleys, and parking lots. This work is done closely with the City to keep Dearborn clear of these neglected vehicles.

This unit is also responsible for processing all impounded vehicles by department officers and administers public auctions of impounded and seized vehicles.

To report an abandoned vehicle, call the Auto-Pound Coordinator. Be prepared to give a detailed description of the vehicle (make, model, color, license plate, how long unmoved), as well as the location.
