The Everett Police Department is partnering with students from Sno-Isle Tech Skills Center in another round of engraving identity numbers on catalytic converters. It’s a first-come, first-served event this Saturday. Here’s what you need to know from the Everett Police Department.

Once your ID number is recorded you receive this sticker for your car.

The VIN number is engraved on the Catalytic Converter which then receives a coat of red paint.

As catalytic converter thefts continue, Everett Police Department remains dedicated to reducing this crime for our residents through arrests and prevention.

We are excited to announce that we are partnering with Sno-Isle Tech and the National Insurance Crime Bureau to have another free Project Cat Con ID event!

Sno-Isle tech’s Automotive Technology students will engrave your catalytic converter for free! The school’s Criminal Justice students will be on hand to help with traffic control.

No appointment necessary, it is a first come first serve event. We hope to see you there!

Date: January 29, 2022
Time: 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Location: Sno-Isle Tech, 9001 Airport Rd, Everett WA, 98204.
Masks are required at all times on campus, so remember to bring yours!

Project CATCON ID was created by Everett Police Department to promote theft prevention techniques for Everett residents by asking vehicle owners to engrave the last 8 digits of their vehicle identification number (VIN) on the catalytic converter and highlight it with high temperature paint. If your converter is stolen and reported it can be tracked back to the owner – if recovered – to help solve crimes. For other ways to protect your vehicle, view our catalytic converter theft prevention sheet. http://everettwa.gov/catcon
