Operation Identification encourages community members to mark or identify valuables as a proactive measure against theft. Marked stolen articles are difficult to sell, and they are more easily traced.
Contact your local Community Police Centre to borrow an electric engraver - free of charge - to mark your personal possessions using a unique identifier, like a driver's licence number. The borrowing period is generally three days. In addition, you are encouraged to photograph or videotape the contents of your home that can't be engraved, including jewelry, silverware, figurines, paintings, etc. Window stickers for your home are also provided to alert people that you have taken proactive measure to deter theft by participating in the Operation Identification Program.
Protect your property - become a participant in Operation Identification.
