Free Catalytic Converter Etching in Rocklin



Rocklin Police Department and Sierra College Auto Club partner to host free Catalytic Converter Etching Event on March 2, 2013

The Rocklin Police Department is partnering with the Sierra College Auto Club and local businesses to address the identification issue by hosting a free catalytic converter etching event on Saturday, March 2, 2013, between 8:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. at the Sierra College campus (auto shop), located at 5000 Rocklin Road, Rocklin, CA 95677.  At this event, the vehicle's license plate number will be etched onto the converter, the area around the etching will be painted for easy recognition, and each vehicle will receive a small window decal stating "This Vehicle's Catalytic Converter Has Been Etched by the Rocklin PD."  These steps can deter thieves and provide police with investigative information to identify victims and prosecute criminals.

Summary: In 2012, there were 73 reported cases of catalytic converter theft in Rocklin, and hundreds more in the surrounding communities. These thefts often result in thousands of dollars in repair and replacement costs for each victim. Catalytic converters are a hot commodity for thieves because of their value, relative ease to steal, and lack of identifying markings. The lack of identification makes it hard for police to locate victims and prosecute criminals. Although catalytic converters are most commonly stolen from Toyota trucks and SUVs, this crime is not specific to Toyotas

How to Schedule an Appointment: Call the Rocklin Police Department catalytic converter hotline at (916) 625-5418 to schedule an appointment.  Leave your name, telephone number, and the most convenient time for you to attend between 8:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.  Your call will be returned and all attempts will be made to accommodate your requested time. The event is free to anyone in the Placer/Sacramento area.

Sponsors and Drawing: The event is sponsored by Superfast Signs, Big Daddy's Pizza Co., Starbucks, Five Star Auto Care, Rocklin Chamber of Commerce, Les Schwab Tires, JD's Bakery, Beach Hut Deli, Scott Yuill - State Farm Insurance, Hofmann Originals, Strikes Unlimited, Sunset Whitney Golf Club, Sportsman's Warehouse, Red Sun Automotive Repair, and WAVE Broadband of Rocklin, Chick Fil-A, Minuteman Press, John L. Sullivan Chevrolet, Roseville Toyota-Scion of Roseville, and the Folsom Lowe's store.  There will also be a drawing at the event to raise money for the Keaton Raphael Memorial and the St. Baldrick's Foundation to cure childhood cancer.  Local businesses have donated multiple drawing prizes, and you need not be present to win.
