CATALYTIC CONVERTER PROGRAM. The City of Milpitas is launching a new program to deter automobile catalytic converter theft crimes. The business enrollment phase is currently underway. The program is funded by a $200,000 allocation of Federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) dollars and will be available for 3 months or until the funding is expended, whichever is sooner. In partnership with the City, local automotive business will provide metal rebar or protective plating services to add an additional layer of protection to deter catalytic converter theft for Milpitas residents. Milpitas residency will be determined by the Milpitas Police Department through an online system.
