The Sacramento Police Department in Conjunction with A Auto presents “ETCH & CATCH”


The Sacramento Police Department is partnering with local businesses to host a FREE catalytic converter etching event.  Your vehicle license plate number will be etched onto your catalytic converter(s).  The etching may prevent your converter from being stolen. 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 and prosecute criminals.

The event takes place on Saturday, June 1, 2013, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM at the A Auto-East Sacramento located at 6101 Folsom Blvd, Sacramento.

This event is sponsored by A Auto, The Home Depot, R/C Country, Cal Signs, Specialized Exhaust, Starbucks Coffee, and Famous Burgers.

The event is not limited to those residing within the City of Sacramento and is open to everyone, regardless of 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.
