Thames Valley Police have issued the following advice about recovering property in the event of theft:
An easy way to protect your home and belongings is by marking your property with a forensic marking liquid.
Each bottle of forensic marking liquid has a unique chemical compound made up of millions of microscopic particles. The liquid can be brushed onto items. It is invisible to the naked eye, easy to apply and almost impossible to remove.
However it shows up under ultraviolet light. When stolen items are recovered it enables police to better reunite belongings with their owners. That's because no two solutions contain the same forensic code therefore any item marked with the liquid can be traced back to each individual bottle and owner.
Once you have marked your belongings signs are available to put up in your front door and windows. These act as a deterrent to burglars.
Watch our video, call 101 to speak with a member of your neighbourhood policing team or search online to find out more about forensic making liquids.
