Auto Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) Etching

Approximately every other month, the WSUPD hosts free VIN etching sessions for all members of our campus community. VIN etching is a process endorsed by many auto insurance companies in which the vehicle identification number is permanently etched into the surface of at least six windows of a vehicle. The process uses a custom stencil and an acid-based paste. The permanent professional results provide traceable numbers in case of theft. This reduces the profit motive for auto theft. All VIN etching sessions are announced via CAMPUSWATCH emails.
