Operation Identification is the engraving of your valuables to deter thieves and also to prove ownership should the article be stolen and recovered by law enforcement. Permanently marked valuables are usually not taken because they are more difficult for thieves to dispose of and if they are stolen, they are more easily recognized and returned to their rightful owners. An inventory list of all your valuables should also be made by going to Leads on Line at https://reportit.leadsonline.com/.
Engravers are available from the University Police Department.
