Moreover, the two hypotheses of managerial styles (2.97) and nativeness of staff (2.84) were not verified. The findings show that of the six hypotheses of the research, four equipment, structure, specialty, and skill hypotheses were verified and two managerial style and employing native staff hypotheses were rejected due to being lower than the average 3. In regards to the research findings, the need to have modern equipment for police posts (Koup) such as Plate Number Readers and biometric, vehicle, high-performance motorcycles and advanced radio and wire communications, wearable cameras, portable computers are all necessary for the detection of stolen vehicles in order to make KOUP intelligent.
