Tackling Rural Crime With DNA This Summer

Tackling Rural Crime With DNA This Summer

As part of an initiative to tackle rural crime, the Thames Valley Police Chiltern Neighbourhood teams and Chiltern District Council and South Bucks District Council's Community Safety Team are offering SelectaDNA security marking for up to five large pieces of equipment such as ride-on mowers, tractors, trailers and large garden petrol-powered equipment over the summer.

A council spokesperson said: “Unfortunately large farming equipment, outbuildings and fields which can be difficult to make secure. The Council encourages anyone who owns this type of equipment to take advantage of the security marking on offer. Marking property ensures it can be returned to its rightful owner in the event of it being recovered after a burglary. It also acts as a deterrent to thieves by making the items harder to sell on.”
