Operation Identification

Operation identification is a program that is designed to discourage theft of valuables from your home and other locations and to provide a way to easily identify stolen property.

Burglars don't like handling marked property. Marked articles are difficult to dispose of and are easily traced. With Operation Identification, burglary can be prevented by first marking items that could be targeted by a thief, then letting him know that you have done so. This is accomplished with decals provided by police to be placed at various points of entry to your residence. Mark Your Valuables

  • To mark your valuables for permanent identification, you may borrow an electric engraver free from the Bathurst Police Service.
  • Keep a record of the property you have marked, descriptions and your identification mark. Items such as radios, televisions, bicycles, skis, VCR's, stereos, DVD players are some of the items frequently targeted by burglars.
  • Use identifying numbers such as your driver's license or your vehicle license plate number. Apply your mark to non-removable and hidden parts of your valuables.
  • About 80 percent of the stolen property recovered by police cannot be identified nor returned to the owners and, as a result, must be sold at public auction. To help the police protect your property and prevent burglary, become a participant in Operation ldentification.

For more information about this program or other programs contact Judy Turple, Crime Prevention Officer Bathurst Police Service at: 548-0471 or email police.crime@bathurst.ca

***Note*** A deposit of $20.00 is required upon receiving an engraver. This money will be refunded upon return of the engraver. The deposit will be forfeited, should the engraver not be returned within 30 days. The borrowing period is generally (72 hours) 3 days.
