The Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP and the City of Vernon Community Safety Unit are teaming up to host a community engraving day.
The event, which helps a person identify valuables if lost or stolen, will go Saturday, Jan. 12, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Community Safety Unit, 3010-31st Avenue, in downtown Vernon.
“Come and join us for our community engraving day, where volunteers will be on hand to engrave all items including, but not limited to, bikes, tools, skis and snowboards,” said RCMP Const. Kelly Brett.
The engraving service offered by the City of Vernon Community Safety Unit is not new to most residents, however the local RCMP have been experiencing a high volume of property that is recovered after being lost or stolen with no way to it track back to its original owner.
“The RCMP are encouraging the community to engrave their valuables to make identification easier for police,” said Brett.
What do you need to bring?
Please ensure you bring identification as all items will be engraved with a personal identification number from either a driver’s license or another form of picture identification.
