GENERAL MOTORS AWARDED SPECIAL CITATION FROM CITY OF ST. LOUIS

 DETROIT, Feb. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- General Motors (NYSE: GM) was recently awarded a special citation from the City of St. Louis by Police Chief Col. Clarence Harmon for the company's long-term efforts to decrease auto theft.
 GM was cited for its PASS-Key theft deterrence system, improvements in steering column design, and efforts made to better trace parts. In announcing the award, St. Louis Board of Police Commissions President David A. Robbins said, "I greatly appreciate General Motors' assistance to the City of St. Louis in these crime prevention efforts."
 The PASS-Key system was introduced on the 1987 Corvette, and is included on over 790,000 GM cars in 1993. Utilizing a resistor pellet on the key, PASS-Key will shut down the starter and fuel delivery system if the code on the key does not match the code programmed into the computer module.
 GM was also honored for working with the St. Louis Police Department in developing new steering column systems which increase resistance to forcible entry sufficient to deter all but the most determined of thieves.
 Working with the FBI, local, state and federal agencies, GM has also improved its parts labeling system to assist in tracking stolen car parts to the original vehicle.
