Next APD VIN Etching (auto theft prevention method)

The next VIN etching sponsored by the APD Auto Theft team will be on Saturday, October 17th from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Home Depot parking lot at 1220 Renaissance Boulevard NE.  VIN etching is a way to prevent auto theft and to help our officers identify a stolen vehicle quickly.  The auto’s VIN number is etched into the glass parts/windows and prevents vehicles from being stolen and dismantled at a ‘chop shop.’  The event is free, bring your vehicle registration with you and the VIN etching only takes a few minutes to complete.
