The UT Dallas Police Department, with the assistance of the North Texas Auto Theft Task Force and Dallas County Sheriff's Office, will host a free vehicle VIN etching program for students, faculty and staff from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 7 in the E-Parking area near Lot A and the police building.
The process only takes a few minutes and involves etching the VIN number on all vehicle glass to make it less desirable to auto thieves. VIN etching also can save vehicle owners up to 10 percent on their comprehensive car insurance.
