'Anti-Burglary Zone' Created In DNA Crime Crackdown

POLICE in Burnham-on-Sea and Highbridge are tackling crime in the two Somerset towns with the use
of SelectaDNA to deter residential burglary.

The project, which launched in July 2014, has been so successful that police in other areas of Somerset are
seeking to roll out the scheme.

PCSO Pete Williams said: “Tregelles Close in Highbridge is the first street in the whole Avon & Somerset Police Force Area to be listed as an ‘Anti-Burglary Zone’ with 28 homes there receiving DNA property marking kits.”
