Catalytic Converter Theft Prevention

The Woodbury Police Department is participating in the Minnesota Commerce Fraud pilot program for preventing the theft of catalytic converters. 

Through the program, residents will receive labels to permanently mark their car's catalytic converter with an unique ID number. Instructions for individuals to etch their converters themselves are included with the kit or residents can bring their labels to partnering shops in Woodbury who will use a solution to permanently etch the number into the converter.

Once registered, the unique number allows law enforcement to trace a converter back to a specific vehicle if a converter were to be stolen and later recovered. Learn more about the Catalytic Converter Pilot Program.  

The Woodbury Police Department cannot apply the numbers to the converters.
