Property Marking Kit

The Stamford and District Crime Prevention Panel have produced a Property Marking Kit that is a visual deterrent to the criminal fraternity. They can be used for domestic and commercial use for example we have used the kits to mark computer equipment in schools around the area.

The kits comprise of 2 x paint pens and 1 x spray can of sealant. Unlike the Ultra Violet marker pens, which are almost invisible to the naked eye, these kits clearly advertise the fact your property is marked (post coded).

Generally criminals want to sell on stolen property quickly, but with this type of marking, they clearly see that they will have to spend a lot of time and money trying to remove the markings.

Not only will it deter the criminals from taking the property in the first place but also the criminals know that the Police can - at a glance - identify that the item does not belonging to them! Not only allowing them to prosecute but more importantly return the item(s) to the rightful owner, YOU.

Question) How easy is it to use one of these kits?

Answer) They are very easy to use; simply write your post code followed by your house number/name on your property (allow to dry) then spray a fine mist on the top to seal it in place.

The kits are currently on sale in Stamford Police Station, Lincolnshire, UK at a cost of 6.00 per kit.

You can use the kits on house hold property, gardening equipment and garage tools etc. Commercially, they can be used on almost anything.
