Please join the Roanoke City Sheriff's Office for one of our upcoming VIN etching events, a service we are able to provide to the community free of charge through the Help Eliminate Auto Theft (HEAT) program.
Please check back for future dates.
Preventing Auto Theft
HEAT is a cooperative effort between the Virginia Department of State Police, Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles, and various local law enforcement agencies, such as the Sheriff's department. The goal is to educate citizens on how to prevent auto theft of vehicles and their parts, as well as to train local law enforcement officers and provide equipment and promotional materials to assist in the fight against auto theft.
