Do you rip out your locks after you install an alarm?

Alarms, cameras and heavy-duty locks are an excellent way to protect your home while you’re away. This is how banks are fortified. But like banks, having an additional layer of security is an important security measure. Banks “mark” money because it is a proven strategy for earning convictions.

The same is true of marking property: registering serial numbers, tagging items with a unique identifier and posting warning signs. Once your property is out the door, just like money at a bank, you’ll never see it again unless it’s identifiable by the police.

Having marked property, with the make, model and serial number registered on the MyPropertyID database, lets you help the police instantly if they catch a criminal red handed. The FOUND feature is a valuable law enforcement tool that lets you partner with law enforcement to fight crime.
