LOCAL POLICE ADVICE RE SAFEGUARDING YOUR POSSESSIONS
The Helmdon Gardening Club invited Brackley Police along to their last meeting and they told us about a fairly new idea called ‘SmartWater’. SmartWater is a liquid solution that can be painted on to any of your possessions. Each bottle contains a unique chemical ‘code’ which is registered to your address. It cannot be seen by the naked eye and is almost impossible to remove. The liquid glows under ultra violet light allowing the Police to identify the true owner of the property and whether is has been stolen. The substance also rubs off on to the hands and clothing of thieves (without their knowledge) and if you display a sign in your window saying that you are protected by SmartWater, the Police say this acts as a deterrent.
The Manufacturers are selling this liquid for £60 plus £10 annual charge. The Police, however, are selling it for a flat fee of £15.
The Gardening Club is compiling its own list of members who are interested in this product but if you are not a member and you would like to know more, please call the Police on the following number:
