Tylerites wishing to protect their property from theft can enroll in Operation ID. The program allows citizens to use property log sheets and an engraver from the Police Department. They can record all of their property on the log sheets and engrave identifying information on those items that do not have identifiers, such as model and serial numbers.
The main police station and each of the substations have the log sheets and engravers, which can be signed out by Tyler citizens. The log sheets have a place for brand names, model names or numbers, serial numbers, and other identifiers. After Operation ID logs are filled out they should be kept in a secure locations, preferably in a fire resistant lock box. Having this information recorded will help police agencies to reunite you with your property should it ever be stolen.
Call the Community Response Office at 531-1096 for more information.
