Security Marked Electric Drill

AVDC's Community Safety team and Thames Valley Police are offering free tool engraving and owner identity marking at Haddenham County Library on Tuesday 28th May 2013. This will be based on a commercially available product called CRE-MARK.

CRE-MARK offers a overt property marking system that clearly marks the ownership of your possessions, in order to deter thieves and aid the recovery of stolen property. The benefits are obvious:

  • Visible deterrent
  • Easy to use
  • Reduces the appeal of items to thieves
  • Stolen property can easily be identified
  • No requirement to register details on any database!

The clearly visible security coding which uses your Postcode and the house number or first two letters of your house name makes the item identifiable and traceable. This marking is then made permanent by coating the markings with CREMARK's specially formulated protective lacquer.

AVDC's Community Safety team and Thames Valley Police are offering the free marking on a first come first served basis, whilst stocks last. Residents can have up to 5 of their power tools/garden implements etc. marked up. Those getting tools marked will also receive a free vehicle crime pack and shed and garage security advice.

To take advantage of this limited offer, please come to Haddenham Library anytime from 10am till 1pm

If you can't make it to one of these sessions, CREMARK is available for purchase here

Tools can be used to break into your home. Please see our shed and garage security e-leaflet for tips to keep your external buildings secure and ultimately your home. You can view or download it from here

For more information please call the Community Safety team at AVDC on 01296 585061.
