GERMAN telecoms operator Deutsche Telekom has deployed SelectaDNA Gel to stop theft from coin-operated telephone boxes in Brandenburg and Sachsen.
The gel, which contains a unique DNA code that can transfer to a thief’s hands and tools, can provide evidence that links suspects to a crime scene. Initial results of the pilot project which started in June 2015 and will cover more than 400 telephone units are encouraging.
None of the units that have been prepared with the gel and deterrent warning stickers have been broken into.
