Tip of the Week: Record and keep serial numbers in a safe place.

If your item is stolen and you provide sheriffs with the serial number, it can be entered into a national database.

This will not only assist law enforcement in the prosecution of whoever is in possession of the property, you will also be able to get your property back.
