Statement form Cllr Peter McDonald:

“Working in partnership with the police I am pleased to be able to say that over four hundred residents in the area I represent have received a SmartWater Kit.

SmartWater is a traceable liquid and forensic asset marking system (taggant) that is applied to items of value to identify thieves and deter theft. It is being used to protect hundreds of thousands of homes, farms, businesses and vehicles across the UK and is used by over 95% of Police forces to deter criminals. SmartWater has helped to reduce burglary by five times the national average. Hopefully, we should now experience a reduction in burglary and theft.”
