SmartWater® Crime Prevention

Crime Prevention

As trusted advisers to clients' we offer practical and cost-effective solutions based on the proven effectiveness of protection strategies and security products in the market. This includes SmartWater® which has been independently proven as the UK's most powerful crime deterrent and is used and endorsed by police forces across the UK. As SmartWater technology approved partners, we are authorised in the application of the UK’s award winning and most powerful crime deterrent and prevention method.*

Using revolutionary cutting-edge forensic coding technology, the SmartWater strategy utilises a colourless forensic liquid for assigning valuables with unique forensic coding for full traceability, whilst the power of the SmartWater brand offers on-going and robust deterrence against burglary and theft. 

SmartWater can be used either as a forensic property coding system, for marking anything from a wedding ring to a lead roof, or as a forensic spray system used to convict criminals by spraying them with SmartWater solution. This provides irrefutable evidence linking the criminal to the crime.

However it is deployed, SmartWater dramatically reduces your chances of experiencing burglary and is known and feared by criminals.

This includes training police, attending police raids, ‘stop and search’ checks for SmartWater marked property, and covert operations against persistent criminals. Only by carrying out this work is it possible to ensure SmartWater remains a potent crime deterrent.
