The Bullhead City Police Department will be participating in the 10th Annual Statewide Vehicle Theft Prevention & Awareness week, which is a coordinated effort between the Arizona Automobile Theft Authority (AATA) and law enforcement agencies to reduce stolen vehicles. To celebrate, the Bullhead City Police Department is inviting the public to the Bullhead City Police Department parking lot, 1255 Marina Boulevard, on Saturday, March 14th from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m., where officers from the COPPS (Community Oriented Policing Problem Solving) Unit will be on hand to educate and provide tools and resources to prevent vehicle thefts. Officers will provide free VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) Etching as part of this statewide effort to reduce the number of stolen vehicles. “VIN etching is chemically etching the vehicle identification number onto the window, which discourages thieves from stealing your vehicle and selling your car parts to unsuspecting customers or chop shops,” said Community Services Officer Lorrie Duggins. For more information call Ms, Duggins at (928) 763-9200 ext. 204.
