On August 20, the Niles Police Department partnered with Cassidy Tire and Service, a Niles business, to hold a catalytic converter theft deterrent event for Niles residents. The event was held at Cassidy Tire and Service, 8733 N. Harlem Avenue.
Cassidy Tire and Service technicians painted a portion of each vehicle's VIN (vehicle identification number) on their respective catalytic converters.
The purpose of this is to deter catalytic converter thefts, as well as provide law enforcement with a traceable investigative lead in the event the catalytic converter is stolen and recovered. Just over 100 Niles residents participated in the event.
