That's the message from the Vancouver Police Department as it launches a campaign to urge people to document their personal property and valuables. This can be as basic as recording the information on a piece of paper or in an electronic database. "All too often members take break-and-enter and theft reports where owners can only give a basic summary of their property," said Sgt. Kevin Bernardin of the VPD's community services section. Depending on the property, owners should record make, model, serial number and colour. Engraving the property is also beneficial, if appropriate. "For property with no serial numbers and not appropriate for engraving, we encourage you to photograph it, such as items like jewelry, paintings and family heirlooms," Ber-nardin said. More information is available at community policing centres, which have engravers, or by downloading copies of pamphlets on the VPD's website.
