An auto theft prevention program called “Vin Etching” will be taking place Oct. 29 in Dorchester.
The process which takes between 5 – 10 minutes, etches the Vehicle Identification Number on vehicles by using a computer generated stencil, which helps identify stolen vehicles and acts as a deterrent.
The program will be held at Peter’s Towing at 150 Freeport St. in Dorchester from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
The fee for the program is $10, however owners can save up to 15 percent off their comprehensive insurance.
In order to participate residents need a vehicle with current and valid registration, $10.00 cash which is paid to the Auto Theft Strike Force to defray the cost of materials and a valid driver’s license.
The program is being sponsored by the Savin Hill Historic Advisers Inc. along with the Boston Police Department District C-11 office and the Governor’s Auto Theft Task Force.
