Operation IDDiscouraging Burglary & Theft
Operation Identification is a Crime Prevention program, which involves the marking of property with an identifying number as a means of discouraging burglary and theft. In order to accomplish this task, the citizen needs to take an electric engraving pen or some type of etching tool and engrave or etch their Driver's License number on an area of the property that cannot be easily dismantled, and which is not easily seen.

After marking your property, make a list of your valuables and keep a copy of the list in a safe place. Once property has been marked and a list made, display an Operation Identification sticker near the front and rear doors and windows of the home. This announces that the valuables in your home have been marked. Essentially, this makes your property difficult for a burglar to dispose of or re-sell.

By participating in Operation Identification, you are taking an important step in protecting your possessions from burglary and theft.
