Programs offered

Operation ID and Online Property Registration – Officers will engrave a driver's license number on your valuables with an etching pen so that the item tracks directly back to you. We also offer an online serial number storage database so in the event your property is stolen, we have the serial number on file in order to complete the police report and enter it into the FCIC/NCIC stolen property database.
