Operation ID is a nationwide program designed to discourage burglary and theft of valuables. It also provides a way for you to easily identify stolen property, and increases law enforcement’s chances of recovery and conviction.
Most burglars steal valuables for resale. But if you mark all items with permanent identification numbers, the burglar may be unable to sell them. If a criminal knows all your valuables are marked, he or she will look for easier and more profitable victims.
Engrave personal property with your driver’s license number prefixed by the two-letter state abbreviation. Do not use your Social Security number unless it is the same as your driver’s license number – this number cannot be traced by law enforcement agencies to determine ownership.
Examples of engraving procedure:
CA 123456789; etc.
When engraving, hold the tool straight up, not at a slant.
