Free vehicle theft deterrents available in Pompano Beach

On Saturday, January 25, 2003, deputies in BSO District 11 Pompano Beach will offer free motor vehicle theft deterrents to area residents. From 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., deputies will be at the rear parking lot of the Wal-Mart at 300 W. Copans Road in Pompano Beach offering VIN etching and C.A.T. (Combat Auto Theft) program registration.,C.A.T. is a remarkably effective way for citizens and law enforcement to work together to keep vehicle theft in check. When a vehicle is registered for C.A.T., a highly visible sticker is placed in the vehicle’s rear window, alerting law enforcement that the car or truck should not be on the road between 1:00 am and 5:00 am. It's a great way to help cut down on nighttime auto theft.,VIN (vehicle identification number) etching puts an inconspicuous, factory-assigned identification number on each window of a vehicle, making it less desirable to thieves.,For more information on the BSO free VIN etching or C.A.T. programs, contact Deputy Lee Rodriquez at (954) 786-4550.
