As part of our ongoing work to deter people from committing crime in Cheshire, we have invested in forensic property marking kits to identify those responsible for theft.
The work we are doing in this area of prevention is branded Operation Shield.
Neighbourhood Policing Teams are visiting households and businesses to introduce forensic property marking.
They are offering householders and business owners' free kits which are made by a UK company called Selectamark Security Systems plc.
Their product is called SelectaDNA.
What is SelectaDNA?
It is a cutting-edge way of protecting your property from theft.
Each bottle within the kit contains a unique DNA code and thousands of tiny microdots that, once applied, identify it as yours.
