[ARCHIVED] Help Eliminate Auto Theft at VIN Etching Event

VIN Etching Event

James City County Police Department will host a VIN etching on July 29, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in the parking lot of Target located at 4630 Monticello Avenue.

The VIN etching event is conducted in partnership with the Virginia State Police Help Eliminate Auto Theft (HEAT) program. The process uses a chemical to permanently mark glass, takes only about 10 minutes to complete and doesn’t affect the appearance of the vehicle. This process creates an obstacle for potential car thieves in that VIN etched glass must be stripped and replaced before a criminal can sell a car.

This program is free and open to the public.
