The Tip of the Week is- Minding Your Property. Mark your property whether farm equipment/boating equipment and record serial numbers when appropriate, it makes it easier to identify if stolen and then recovered. UV markers or special etching tools can be used. It is also a good idea to photograph your property, photograph items such as jewellery against a ruler. Keep copies of your photos elsewhere than your computer.
