Surrey Police: Crime Prevention Advice – DNA Property Marking

THEFT from residential properties in three areas of Surrey has dropped dramatically following the use of forensic property marking solution SelectaDNA by householders.

Burglaries from homes in Guildford, Elmbridge, and Epsom and Ewell, fell on average by 66% in the six months following the launch of the project and 58% when compared to the same time period the previous year.
Following the success of the initiative, part of Surrey Police’s Beat the Burglar campaign, all residents in the county are now being offered the chance to buy a SelectaDNA home property marking kit at a reduced price. 
SelectaDNA is a uniquely coded, non-toxic liquid enabling homeowners to ‘forensically mark’ valuable posessions such as laptops, games consoles, jewellery, electrical items and tools.  It can also be used to mark property stored outside the home, including garden equipment, pedal cycles etc.  Barely visible to the naked eye and almost impossible to remove, the solution glows under ultraviolet (UV) light making it easy for police to detect and return property to the rightful owner,  if stolen.
Mole Valley Crime Reduction Advisor, PC Mike Bessent, has been involved in working in our community and demonstrating the benefits of using this product and would recommends its to residents and businesses.
Householders can buy the SelectaDNA home property marking kit at 40% discount until the end of April 2011. Call 01689 860757 or visit
