Mark Your Property
In case of theft, your chances of recovery are increased if your property is marked. The majority of stolen items recovered by police cannot be identified and returned to owners. Burglars do not like property that is marked because it is hard to sell.
- Record serial numbers and descriptions of your possessions.
- Use an electric engraving pencil to engrave an identification number on your possessions.
- Complete a home inventory of your personal belongings, along with a videotape or
photograph of each item of value.
