The goal of Operation Identification is to deter property-related crime and to assist in the return of stolen or lost property to its rightful owner.
1. Mark your property with your California Drivers License or Identification Card Number, not your social security number.
2. Marking your property increases the likelihood of it being returned to you, if recovered.
3. You may borrow an engraver from your local Los Angeles Police station.
4. The success of this Los Angeles Police Department program depends on you. The return of thousands of dollars in recovered stolen property and a reduction in the victimization of the residents of Los Angeles is our goal.
