A free service was offered Thursday to help deter vehicle thefts in the Birmingham area.

AAA Alabama, along with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office and Hoover Police Department sponsored a free vehicle identification number etching service to the public  Thursday.

The VIN etching took place at AAA's office in Birmingham on Acton Road.

VIN etching is done by chemically stenciling the VIN number permanently and discreetly onto all of the windows of a vehicle.

Law enforcement encourages VIN etching and says it often serves as a deterrent to car theft.

Contact the AAA Alabama office for more information on when the next VIN etching service will be held.
