Property kit deterrent

Have your say

EVERY single household in a Derbyshire village is to receive a property marking kit so residents can mark up their valuables.

Each batch of SmartWater has its own unique DNA-type code which is logged onto a national database, making it easier for police officers to reunite stolen goods with their owners.

Police hope promoting the fact each house in Clowne will be receiving the property marking kits this month will act as a deterrent to thieves in the area.

Coun Brian Murray-Carr, said: “SmartWater has proved to be an excellent deterrent.”
