Free VIN etching and free HEAT registrations
EL PASO (KTSM) — The El Paso County Auto Burglary & Theft Prevention Task Force and Westside Regional Command PAR Officers/Explorers have teamed up with Sunland Park Mall to help make El Paso an even safer place to own a vehicle.
Free to the public, the groups will be offering VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) Etching and H.E.A.T. Registrations (Help End Auto Theft) between the hours of 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., Saturday, July 27.
Even with VIN Etching, H.E.A.T. registrations, alarms, etc. there is still no 100% way to completely safeguard your vehicle from a thief. By using all of these devices and services, remembering to lock your car, putting your valuables out of sight, taking your keys, make it hard on the thief and reduce your risks of falling victim to theft.
