Operation ID is a burglary/theft prevention program. It involves engraving property with an identifying number, such as a license, as a means of discouraging burglary and theft. It also provides police with a way to identify property should it be stolen and recovered.
Anything of value should be marked if possible. A detailed inventory of all marked items should be kept by the property owner. Include make, model, serial number, and description along with specific marking.
In an effort to reduce the amount of false alarms, and thereby free up police resources to respond to emergencies, the City of Fayetteville adopted a City Ordinance regulating the use of home and business alarms. This ordinance requires that all alarms be registered annually with CryWolf, a third party administrator.

House Watch Request
Going out of town? Increase the security of your home while you are away by completing a House Watch Request Form. This alerts patrol officers of your absence and reminds them to make specific stops by your home to be sure your home is how it should be. Fields include certain vehicles that are approved to be in your driveway or even individuals that are approved to be on the property(house sitter, pet sitter, etc.). Though we can not provide full time security, it is a good idea to have another set of eyes on your property while you are away.
These forms can be turned into the Fayetteville Police Department or emailed to:
