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.
