MERSEYSIDE Police released the first set of crime reduction statistics after the launch of Operation Aquila in June 2014, which is using SelectaDNA in targeted crime hotspot areas.
• Business robberies across the targeted areas are down 62%
• Domestic burglaries across the targeted areas are down 40%
It is expected that domestic burglaries will fall even more over the next few months thanks to a sustained marketing campaign by Merseyside Police involving billboard and bus stop advertising which continues to raise the profile of the scheme among criminals.
