VIN Etching

Why should you consider VIN Etching on your vehicle as a visual deterrent against auto theft? When a vehicle is stolen, the thief must change the identity of the vehicle by changing the VIN plate on the dashboard. With a new VIN plate in place, he now has a new vehicle, but with a vehicle that has been etched, the thief must replace each piece of widow glass. This extra work and expense may cause a thief to think twice about your car and move on to a car that’s not etched.

In order to get your car etched, you just need to show proof of ownership, current registration and complete a consent form provided by the police department. Contact the Avondale Police Department Crime Prevention Unit or visit the Arizona Auto Theft Authority website to locate free VIN Etching events near you.
