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, January 25, 2003, BSO deputies from District-11 will offer free vehicle theft deterrents.

From 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., deputies will be at the rear parking lot of the Walmart at 300 W. Copans Road in Pompano Beach offering VIN etching and C.A.T. (Combat Auto Theft) program registration.

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 an inconspicuous, 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 or C.A.T. programs, contact Deputy Lee Rodriquez at (954) 786-4550.
