Following a council scheme using outdoor marking product SelectaDNA Trace, 100% reduction in metal theft from parks in Dudley has been achieved.
Dudley Council confirmed that metal theft from parks had been a problem in the borough previously and that 30 rails of security fence had been taken from a park in one particular incident prior to the introduction of Trace.
SelectaDNA Trace is designed for the protection and identification of valuable metals and outdoor equipment. It is a high tech asset/infrastructure marking solution which consists of a group of ceramic particles and thousands of microdots.
These tiny, metallic dots are read by a microscope to show a SelectaDNA code which is linked to the Police approved Secure Asset Register database.
