Sheriff’s Office offers free car theft deterent


It’s free. It just takes a few minutes and it could help prevent your car from being stole, said Martha Dooley, Knox County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson.

Dooley said that permanently inscribing the vehicle identification number on your car windshield and windows would help protect the car from being stolen or make the vehicle easier to identify if it is taken.

This special program between the Sheriff’s Office and the local chapter of the Chartered Property Casualty Underwriters will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, May 21, at the Knoxville Center Mall on the J.C. Penney side.

Dooley said, “This is the thirteenth year for this cooperativbe venture. The CPCU underwrites the materials and the Sheriff’s Office provides volunteers and traffic control.”

The process of putting the VIN on the car window does not harm the glass and is placed in a discreet location. Car thieves and vandals will often bypass a car that has been VIN etched because the car can be traced quickly.

It just takes about 10 minutes for the entire process and is a smart, no-cost way to thwart a car thief.

Sheriff tim Hutchison urges everyone to take advantage of this service.
