                                                                                                 District 1
location on Sunland Park & Cromo . Although the auto theft rate is down by 12% from              Ann Morgan Lilly
the rate of a year ago, there have been over 1100 thefts in El Paso this year. VIN
(Vehicle Identification Number) Etching is the placement of the Vehicle's identification
                                                                                                 District 2
number into the glass of the vehicle, with the use of a chemical. VIN Etching makes the          Susannah M. Byrd
vehicle less inviting to an auto thief, as this process makes the vehicle much more
difficult to sell for parts. Most vehicles are worth at least twice their book value in parts,   District 3
rather than in one piece. Also, most Insurance Companies offer an additional discount to         Emma Acosta
customers who have VIN Etching. There is no charge for this service.
