Operation Safeguard is a crime prevention initiative designed to help Law Enforcement successfully identify, recover, and return stolen property to its rightful owner. Historically, law enforcement agencies nationwide have experienced difficulty in identifying ownership and in returning stolen property.
This initiative is based on a simple theory, persuade property owners to document information about their property. The documented information should include make, model, and serial number. The Titusville Police Department provides a user-friendly form for convenience. Store the form in a safe place. A property without a serial number may be marked with identifying marks.
In the case of theft, the information can be supplied to the Titusville Police Department.
If you are the victim of a burglary/theft, the Titusville Police Department will take the serial number of your stolen property and enter into the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) database which is maintained by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Providing the make, model, and the serial number gives law enforcement useful tools to recover and return your property and the criminal properly prosecuted.
Another valuable avenue of recovery is with pawn shops. The Florida Pawn Broking Act compels pawnbrokers to provide law enforcement information about items pawned including serial numbers. They are also required to obtain government-issued photographic identification of individuals who pawn property and provide that information to law enforcement along with the items pawned.
The Titusville Police Department is committed to reducing crime. By participating in Operation Safeguard, you are taking an important step in protecting your property from burglary and theft. Together, we can make a difference! Please email Amy Matthews for a digital form.
