The Sacramento Police Department in Conjunction

with Jiffy Lube presents “ETCH & CATCH”

The Sacramento Police Department is partnering with local businesses to host a FREE catalytic converter etching event where vehicle license plate numbers will be etched onto catalytic converters.  

The event takes place on Wednesday, May 2, 2012, from 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. at the Jiffy Lube located at 2900 Florin Road, Sacramento, CA 95822. 

The presence of license plate numbers on catalytic converters can provide police with the information needed to identify stolen property, contact victims, and apprehend and prosecute criminals.  This event is sponsored by Jiffy Lube, The Home Depot, Cal Signs, Office Depot, Church's Chicken, Specialized Exhaust, and Starbucks Coffee.

The event is only open to City of Sacramento residents and space is limited.  At the event, you will be required to show proof that you are currently residing in Sacramento.  Bring one of the following with your Sacramento address: Drivers License, Vehicle Registration or Power Bill.  The event will be cancelled if it rains.
