Police offer VIN etching on car windows

(Continued)

Hanshaw added the program has been very popular in years past, the last time being roughly eight years ago. Amesbury in general doesn’t have many cars stolen each year — about a half dozen reported annually. But Hanshaw said car thefts are far greater problems in nearby communities such as Haverhill and Lawrence, making the clinic a worthwhile trip for car owners in those cities and other communities.

For more information about the program, contact Hanshaw at 978-3488-1217 or email him at: thomash@amesburyma.gov. To contact the Governor’s Auto Theft Strike Force, call 1-800-HOT-AUTO.
