VIN Etching Schedule

The Austin Police Department, through the Auto Theft Interdiction Project, provides free VIN number etching for your vehicle. The etching is a permanent theft deterrent device applied to all the windows of your vehicle, and may result in a reduction in automobile insurance.

When the VIN number etchings are applied, thieves will see the etched windows and think twice about stealing your vehicle. As a result of the etching, thieves will have to replace every piece of glass on your vehicle before illegally selling it. This costs the thieves extra time and money, enough to make them move on to easier targets.
