APD Offering Free Vehicle VIN Etching Tomorrow
The Austin Police Department's Auto Theft Interdiction Unit and the Region 1
District Representatives will be providing free VIN etching on vehicles on
Thursday, February 21, 2013 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Target Capital Plaza,
5621 N. IH 35.
The Austin Police Department, through the Auto Theft Interdiction Project, provides free VIN number etching for your vehicle. The etching is a permanent theft deterrent device applied to all the windows of your vehicle, and may result in a reduction in automobile insurance.
When the VIN number etchings are applied, thieves will see the etched windows and think twice about stealing your vehicle. As a result of the etching, thieves will have to replace every piece of glass on your vehicle before illegally selling it. This costs the thieves extra time and money, enough to make them move on to easier targets.
North Austin is roughly bordered by Parmer, 183, I-35, and Mopac. That's 13 square miles and 93,000 people.
We thought we'd publish a map of Spot Crime and show a day in North Austin. Five reported crimes - pretty amazing for such a large area!
We are very lucky to have several strong and active Watches and also a great APD command that work together to keep crime low.
Thank you, guys! We love having a safe community!!
The Region 2 Northwest and Northeast District Representatives will host a
Commander's Forum from 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, February 5,
2013 to share information and talk about community concerns with
residents and business owners.
The forum will take place at the ParmerWoods Assisted
Living Facility, 12429 Scofield Farms Drive (at Parmer
Lane East of Metric),
