Vehicle etching is the process of permanently etching a vehicle’s Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) on each piece of window glass on the vehicle.  It serves as a permanent fingerprint of your vehicle and is a visual deterrent against auto theft. The process affects only the outer most layer of the glass, and will not damage your windows or make them weaker. Once a year, usually in January, SAV volunteers etch vehicles at no charge, in Green Valley.  You can learn more about vehicle etching at the Arizona Automobile Theft Authority, To learn about the Green Valley etching program, please call SAV.
