St. Lucie County Sheriff invites north-St. Lucie County residents to protect their property with Operation Identification Saturday, Nov. 5, at Sunland Gardens Community Center, 3415 Ave. Q., Fort Pierce
To encourage north-St. Lucie County property owners to better  protect their property, St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken J.  Mascara is inviting people to participate in Operation  Identification.

"We are partnering with the community to facilitate Operation  Identification and other essential crime prevention programs.   It is only through community partnerships that we find success  in deterring crime,” Sheriff Mascara said.

"This is a proactive effort on the part of the Sheriff’s  Office to encourage property owners to take the time to label  or mark their property and to keep good records of personal  property," said Sheriff Mascara.

Operation Identification involves four steps for property  owners:

1. Keep records of personal property;

2. Place labels on personal property;

3. Encourage property owners to engrave their driver’s license  number on personal property; and

4. Place OPERATION ID sticker on a residence or business  indicating participation in the program, which can have a  deterrent effect on would-be thieves.

"We invite the public to come to Sunland Gardens Community  Center on Saturday, Nov. 5, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to get more  information on Operation ID and to participate," Sheriff  Mascara
