Operation Identification

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

Operation Identification is a nationwide program designed to discourage burglary and the theft of valuables from your home or business and provide a way for you to easily identify stolen property.

Operation ID reduces the profit from crime. Marking your valuables with your State Drivers License or ID card number will make your property hard to sell. If your valuables are marked, the thief is likely to look for valuables that are not marked.

You can borrow an engraver from the Novato Fire stations or the Novato Library. When you return the engraver you will receive stickers to place on windows and on your valuables to alert the thief that they have been marked.
