Longview, TX — The Longview Police Department is encouraging citizens to participate in Operation Identification.

Operation Identification (Operation ID) is a citizen’s burglary prevention program for use in homes and businesses.

The Operation ID program involves marking property with an identifying number as a means of discouraging burglary and theft. It also provides police with a way to identify property should it be stolen and recovered.

In communities where it has been properly implemented, Operation ID has shown dramatic results in burglary reduction. Operation ID has also been instrumental in the recovery of citizen’s property and the arrest of suspects.

If a citizen’s property is marked properly and is stolen or found and turned in to the police department then the likelihood of the citizen getting their property returned to them increases dramatically.

For more information on this program offered by the Longview Police Department you can contact Sgt Chris Clark at (903)237-1155, by email at hclark@longviewtexas.gov, or contact the Police Area Representative for your area.
