One important way to protect your property that is often overlooked, is to copy down the make, model and serial number of your property. If there is no serial number then the property should be marked in some way to identify the owner. If a person is found with suspected stolen property, the serial number can confirm that it is stolen. This then allows police to solve current and past crimes and gather information about who is doing what. Catalog your belongings with detailed information such as make, model, serial number, value and purchase date.
