UPPD Offers VIN Etching

November 9, 2004

Crime Prevention Officer Snellgrove with the University Park Police Department offered VIN (vehicle identification number) etching at the HP Soccer team car wash fundraiser last weekend. The Crime Prevention Officer etched the VIN numbers free of charge on vehicle windows for interested citizens. VIN etching is used as an anti-theft device. Many insurance companies will give an anti-theft discount on your car insurance. If you are interested in VIN etching, contact Officer Snellgrove at 214-987-5374 for an appointment.
