How can I identify my belongings to prevent theft?

Identify your belongings by engraving your initials or other markings identifiable only to you on them, recording serial number information, and taking videotapes or photographs of the item(s). List your valuables by serial numbers and identifying features on an inventory sheet. This sheet should be kept separately in a safe place, like a safe or safety deposit box. This not only helps us recover your property should it ever be stolen, it also helps prevent theft. Thieves are less likely to steal something that can be readily identified as stolen. Contact Officer Shaine Gunderson at 208-883-7054 for further information on crime prevention.
