SelectaDNA Intruder Spray is being rolled out across parts of Greater Manchester as part of an operation to protect local businesses.
Operation Guard has been launched in response to a spike in commercial robbery and burglary. The aim of the operation is to deter perpetrators from committing crime by utilising and promoting forensic marking technology.
SelectaDNA Spray is a commercial burglary and robbery deterrent and can be used by businesses, shops, banks and other premises to protect their valuable stock and assets. Once triggered the spray soaks intruders in a solution containing a unique DNA code that is visible under the UV light of police custody suites. The spray can remain on clothing and skin for weeks and is traceable back to the scene of the crime.
The operation will focus on those areas suffering with the highest amount of robbery and will initially run for four months.
