Police mark up property

Have your say

FREE property marking kits have been handed out to Chesterfield residents to help protect their homes from thieves.

Officers from the Chesterfield North Safer Neighbourhood Teams gave SmartWater kits to homeowners to mark their belongings, including televisions, laptops and cars.

Residents living on Milldale Close, Carsington Close and Yeldersley Close had the forensically coded liquid applied to valuables in their homes and were offered crime prevention advice.

Each batch used is unique to each house meaning police officers can easily trace the rightful owners of stolen property.
