In the few short weeks I'd worked with the campus police, I'd already picked up a thing or two. Bicycle and stereo theft was a big issue at UNC. To make it harder for the thieves to fence the loot (I'd picked up some jargon, too), the campus police recommended students etch their driver's license number (not their social and not their student I.D.) onto "at risk" items. This strip just took things to the next level. If I prevented just one beer can from being stolen, I did my job.
