Slovenia Success: Reducing Rail Metal Theft To Zero

FORENSIC property marking is proving highly effective in Slovenia with the recent news of success in a project using SelectaDNA Trace on Slovenian Railways that has resulted in zero metal thefts since April 2014.

In another successful project, police in Ostrava have been using SelectaDNA to mark bikes since 2013. With police backing, SelectaDNA was recently demonstrated to Milan Chovanec, Czech Minister of the Interior. The Minister was duly impressed and has agreed to provide subsidies for other Czech cities to use SelectaDNA.

In order to prevent the theft of valuable medical items, SelectaDNA is also being used to mark equipment including wheelchairs at Ljubljana University Medical Centre, the largest hospital in Slovenia. It is also being used to mark items of value at several local museums.

In the municipality of Idrija, invisible SelectaDNA Trace has been sprayed on bronze statues in the town centre to deter metal theft.
