The East Aurora Police Department is helping sponsor a free auto theft prevention program. The next session is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the West Falls Fire Department.

The state's "Watch Your Car" auto theft program offers two methods to help deter vehicle theft.

One is a voluntary vehicle registration program. Owners sign a document stating that their vehicles are not normally used between 1 and 5 a.m. and allow for a police stop of the vehicle during those hours.

The second is the vehicle identification number etching program. The number is etched onto each window so that it cannot be changed or altered without damaging windows.

Car owners must present a valid driver's license, vehicle registration and valid insurance card for the programs.

Police officers will be available to inspect child and infant safety seats Saturday as well.

The fire department is at 1864 Davis Road (Route 240).
