News from BSO


The Broward Sheriff's Office is giving Pompano Beach residents the tools they need to help keep their vehicles secure.

On Saturday, October 26, 2002, from 8:30 in the morning to 1:00 in the afternoon, BSO deputies from District-11 will offer VIN etching, C.A.T. (Combat Auto Theft) program registration, and bicycle registration. The etching and registration will take place in the parking lot of the BSO Sub Station at 1820 Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard (Hammondville Rd.) in Pompano Beach.

CAT is a remarkably effective way for citizens and law enforcement to work together to keep vehicle theft in check. When you register for CAT, a highly visible sticker is placed on the rear window of your vehicle. The sticker lets law enforcement know that your 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 a factory-assigned identification number on each window of your vehicle, making it less desirable to thieves.

For more information on the BSO free VIN etching, the C.A.T. program, or other crime prevention initiatives, contact Deputy Lee Rodriquez at (954) 786-4550.
