Operation Identification & HEAD

Operation Identification (Operation ID) is a nationally recognized burglary prevention program in which citizens make an inventory of their property and permanently mark their valuables with an identification number, preferably a Texas Driver’s License or ID number.

This program is designed to:

  • Discourage the activities of burglars and thieves by marking your possessions and placing decals on your windows.
  • Aid in the return of lost or stolen property to the owner.
  • Discourage burglars from fencing stolen property.
  • Assist in apprehending and convicting criminals caught with marked property.

Help End Auto Theft

This is a voluntary statewide vehicle registration program designed to reduce car thefts. Special decals are placed on the vehicle alerting officers that the owner does not normally use the car between the hours of 1:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m.

If the vehicle is being operated during these hours, police officers may legally stop and question the driver. In addition, these decals alert Mexican authorities that the car may be stolen and should be checked before it crosses the border. Personnel at each patrol substationhave the capability of registering vehicles.
