Vehicle Identification Number Window Etching Event

Window etching of your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is an excellent deterrent to auto theft.  In a matter of minutes the VIN can be permanently fixed in a corner of each window.  Placing the VIN on each window can discourage thieves from dismantling your automobile and reselling the parts, which is one of the primary reasons our vehicles are stolen.  It also assists law enforcement efforts to retrieve a stolen vehicle

The next VIN Etching Event, sponsored by the Albuquerque Police Department, is scheduled for the following date, time and location.

Saturday, April 16, 2016

9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
