Smart way to cut crime

Have your say

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.
