Maryport residents in Cumbria have become the first in the UK to sign-up for a property protection scheme that uses SmartWater technology to forensically mark valuable items.

Police community support workers along with Neighbourhood Support Teams are using the new technology in a bid to combat burglaries in the area. SmartWater is being increasing used as the next step from ultra violet pens that have been traditionally been used to mark valuables. ItÂ’s hoped that the new initiative will reduce burglaries in the area by 7.50/0 during the three years that the pilot scheme will be running.
