In response to persistent thefts targeting certain Hyundai vehicles without push-button ignitions and immobilizing anti-theft devices, the Baltimore County Police Department is collaborating with Thompson Hyundai and the Precinct-12 Community Police Alliance in hosting a one-day event to provide Baltimore County Hyundai owners whose vehicles are equipped with a standard “turn-key-to-start” ignition with the necessary anti-theft software upgrade. Additionally, steering wheel locks will also be provided.

On Saturday, October 7, 2023, from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 12 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., specially trained mobile service technicians will be on-site to install and complete the software upgrade, which should take approximately 20 minutes. The update will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. There will be no appointments. Thompson Hyundai is located at 1000 Merritt Blvd., Dundalk, MD 21222.
