The Pembroke Police Services Board in conjunction with the Pembroke Public Library are pleased to present the Property Identification Program. This program will help Police recover your high-value electronics, tools, computer equipment, small appliances etc. if they are stolen. It is a free, easy way to mark your high-value property. Marked property is a proven way to help deter property theft and recover valuable items taken during a burglary. Marked property is difficult for a burglar to sell and if the burglar is caught with marked property, it is evidence of possession of stolen property. Marked property can also assist Police in tracing it to the original owner.
Visit the Pembroke Public Library to borrow an electric engraver free of charge to mark your personal possessions.
Criminal record checks and police checks are required for a variety of purposes including employment, adoption, international travel, volunteer work, citizenship, name change, student placement or to obtain a record suspension (formerly pardon).
