Operation Identification Program
Q: What is Operation Identification Program?
A: The Operation Identification Program helps identify those valuables that can be easily stolen. They are personally marked in the event that this does happen. The idea is based on the fact that if someone is caught with your property in his / her possession, the marked valuables constitute solid evidence of possession of stolen property.
Q: Why should I have my valuables marked?
A: No one is immune to theft. Participation in this program helps reduce the chance of stolen items as it makes the items difficult to dispose of if they have been marked.
Q: How do I participate in this program?
A: Visit the University Police Department, Humanities Room 0053 with your valid Student ID card or a valid Driver’s License. You will deposit this with the Department in exchange for the engraver. After marking / engraving the items, make a list of all the items you have engraved, including brands, serial numbers, model numbers and submit that list with your Student ID number. University Police will keep the information stored on cards.
Q: What items should I mark?
A: Televisions, computers, laptops, stereo equipment, bicycles, and any other items you deem valuable.
IF YOU HAVE PROPERTY STOLEN, COME TO THE UNIVERSITY POLICE DEPARTMENT AND FILE A POLICE REPORT.
Brands, model numbers and serial numbers are helpful pieces of information to include in the report.
