Property Marking Scheme

What is property marking?

Property Marking is a way of deterring theft by engraving an identifier or EIRCODE on personal property. It also helps An Garda Siochana to reunite lost or stolen items with their owners

The machine can be used on many materials including wood, leather, plastic, carbon fibre, and metal, and many items such as bicycles, scooters, trailers, lawnmowers, and other valuable equipment and machinery. It can be used for household and farming items. 

How can you be part of our property marking scheme?

Longford Local Community Safety Partnership, with Longford County Council and An Garda Síochana, are running a Property Marking Scheme in Longford.

Property marking training can be arranged, and then the local community can borrow a Longford LCSP machine free of charge to run a property marking event and engrave items belonging to people in the community.

So far, our machine has been borrowed regularly by community groups and there has been great engagement when Longford LCSP has attended Farmers Marts in Ballymahon and Granard.
