Property Identification

As a rule, burglars do not like handling marked property because it is difficult to dispose of and can be easily traced. Help deter thieves from stealing your property and assist HRPS to return your recovered stolen property by:

  • recording serial numbers and model numbers in a secure place
  • take photos or videos of your valuables
  • keep valuables in a locked safe – bolted to the wall or floor
  • record unique markings or damage to your valuables
  • mark your valuables with an engraver, permanent stencil or microdot technology tool.

For additional information on protecting your property, please see the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP).
