It is important to document and store your serial numbers in a safe place. Serial numbers are one way for police to track your property if it is stolen and to prove ownership. The Duluth Police Department would also like to take it a step further. We have available for public use Carbide Marking Pens (to write on metal), Black Light Pens (to mark property in an undetectable way), and Operation I.D. stickers and bags.
