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, November 28, 2012, from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM at the Jiffy Lube located at 3000 Capital Avenue in Sacramento.  

The etching may deter the theft of your catalytic converter. The presence of license plate numbers on catalytic converters can also provide police with the information needed to identify stolen property, contact victims, and apprehend criminals.

This event is sponsored by Jiffy Lube, The Home Depot, Cal Signs, Office Depot, Specialized Exhaust, Starbucks Coffee, and KFC.

The event is not limited to those residing within the City of Sacramento and is open to everyone, regardless where you live.  Registration prior to the event is required, and space is limited. 

Register now by going online to  Access the "METAL Theft" link on the left side of the home page and click on "ETCH & CATCH EVENT".   Click on the link at the bottom of the flyer and then choose "Attend" next to the Etch & Catch Event.   Complete the "Registration" form and download the FREE ticket to the event.
