West Felton Parish Council are inviting householders in the Parish to come along to the Village Hall in the upcoming month to receive their FREE ‘Smartwater’ kit enabling you to mark your valuables which, if stolen, can then be traced directly to your home.
Smartwater allows residents to mark their homes and property with water that is unique chemically coded their address. This water shows up under ultra-violet light. In the event of a theft and subsequent recovery of property by the Police, the unique code of the water means that the stolen property can be returned to the rightful owner. The Police are providing signs to go up across the parish to deter thieves.
Ultimately this will free up thin police resources away from petty theft to more important policing. If crimes of this sort is further reduced it should translate into lower insurance premiums for residents.
The initial roll-out of this system, which has the backing and support of the local policing team will be held in 2 sessions:
Between 7pm and 9pm on Monday 4th December;
and Between 10am and 1pm on Saturday 9th December
