Motorists could avoid becoming automotive theft victims.
On April 13, a free VIN etching event is being hosted in Manassas.
Automobiles have a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). During the program, officials will use a solution to inscribe VINs onto windows and windshields.
This can discourage thieves, who may attempt to sell the glass parts.
The Prince William County Police Department (PWCPD), Manassas City Police Department, and Virginia State Police’s H.E.A.T. Program are sponsoring the program.
It will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Shops at Signal Hill shopping center, 9692 Liberia Avenue.
Participants must bring a valid driver’s license and registration. Only motorists listed on a vehicle’s registration are allowed to approve a VIN etching.
To learn more, call Prince William County Police Crime Prevention Specialist Officer Jason Alicie at 703-792-4425, or Manassas City Police Public Information Officer and Crime Prevention Specialist Sarah Maroney at 703-257-8064.
