FREE property marking kits are to be handed out in Clowne, Derbyshire, to help deter thieves from striking in the village.
SmartWater packs are available from a Mobile Police Station during Clowne Gala on Sunday, September 17.
The SmartWater kits have been paid for by Clowne Parish Council.
SmartWater is a liquid which is invisible to the naked eye but contains a unique DNA-style code that can be identified under UV light. It can be applied to property and each batch is logged on a national database.
