Operation Identification is an anti-burglary and theft program designed to help you prevent theft of your property. It also assists law enforcement in returning your property to you in the event it is stolen and recovered.
Operation Identification has two parts. First, you mark all your valuables so that they can be identified as yours. Second, you display a sticker, normally affixed to an exterior door or window that tells burglars that you have identified your property.
What makes Operation Identification program so effective in reducing burglary in areas where it has been properly implemented is that burglars and thieves know it is difficult to sell stolen articles that can be traced to them and that they run a greater risk of being caught and convicted if readily identifiable items of someone else's property are found in their possession.
Participation in the program simply involves picking up one of the "free loan" engravers at the Town of Brookfield Police Department. You then list the items you wish to protect by name, full description, serial and model number, and value on an inventory sheet. Then engrave your driver’s license number on the items and list that location on the sheet as well. Keep the inventory sheet in a safe place with your other valuable papers.
For more information, or to pick up an engraver, contact: Sgt. David Mironischen firstname.lastname@example.org or (262) 796-3798 ext. 126
If you are going out of town on vacation for a few months, a few weeks, or even a few days, you can contact the police department administrative office and request a “house check.” Please be prepared to advise all pertinent information including dates away, name, address, emergency contact person, timers, lights, alarms, etc. This is a free service to Town residents provided by your police department.
Officers will make every effort to check your residence daily. Notifying the police department when you are away for just a weekend or an extended period of time may give you peace of mind while you are away.
