Dog Tags and Data Centers
You receive dog tags when you kill NPC enemies, and
in some cases the item description
suggests that you
should take them to the proper authorities.
What it means is you should take them to
Here's how to do that.
Take Dog Tags to Datacenters
Certain solar systems (listed later on this page) contain data centers.
In these solar systems, you will find a beacon in
space, and you can warp to it to find a deadspace
region that contains a data center,
where an agent will offer you the
"keeping crime in check" mission
to go get some dog tags and turn them in for
some rewards. In particular, you will either
need to turn in 10 copper tags of the pirate
faction that the mission agent specifies,
or you will need to turn in 20 of one of the other
The agents who want 10 copper tags are all Level 1, quality 0.
Agents wanting 20 of the harder-to-get tags all have higher than L1 Q0.
Also check the stations in these solar systems for agents
who might offer the "Keeping Crime In Check" missions.
It can take weeks to gather up the necessary
tags, so you should do it ahead of time, or be prepared
to spend millions of ISK to buy the tags before the
When you hand in those tags, you will get a
faction standing increase and
and some ISK rewards and item rewards that depend on

How to Get Dog Tags
When you destroy an NPC enemy, you might find a dog tag in the wreckage.
This is perhaps the cheapest way to get dog tags, but
because dog tags are a fairly rare drop, it will take a long time to gather
enough dog tags for a data center mission.
In and near the solar systems listed above, though, you are more likely
to get dog tags as a drop from NPC enemies.
It is also possible to buy dog tags on the market,
but they are usually very expensive, because not only do they help with
the data center missions, but they are also usable as payment in loyalty
point stores for the various corporations in EVE.
