We would like
to remind our members that we are giving away free property marking kits for their
valuable office equipment. Moving in to the winter months burglary does tend to
increase but we want to ensure our businesses our protected and this a great
way of doing so.
These will be
delivered by our dedicated police officer PC Nick Morant who will not only
explain how to use them effectively but also provide other advice on keeping
your premises safe.
If you would
like to order a kit (each marks 50 items so if need be you’re welcome to have
more than one) please email our Business & Operations Manager Henry Johnstone
The kits, supplied by SelectaDNA, consist of a unique synthetic DNA solution which
is applied to equipment such as computers, TVs, mobile phones and cameras.
Signage at the premises and on the items themselves serves as a strong
deterrent but if stolen items are later recovered by the police, the unique
identifying code means the property can be returned to its original owner and
the perpetrator linked directly to a crime scene; increasing conviction rates.
Areas with SelectaDNA have seen a decline in burglary of up to 82%.
