Property Marking

Cheshire Police recommend that residents consider marking items of value, often referred to as 'Property Marking'.

There are numerous products available accessed by searching the web, or visiting a DIY store, or similar retail outlet. Products range from simple u.v. pens to more sophisticated 'DNA' type products.

In addition to property marking, they also suggest residents consider registering key items through a registration service, accessed via the web, where registration may be free of charge. Currently Cheshire police have a partnership with Immobiliser enabling them to access information in relation to stolen property.

Recently they have received reports of someone suggesting their property marking product and registration scheme have been police approved via their West Cheshire Crime Reduction Advisor. This is not the case.

Please treat with caution, or challenge, claims from anyone who is looking to gain sales credibility or advantage by suggesting they are 'working with the police', or similar language.

Cheshire police are not in a position to promote individual products or companies. Some products/services have been awarded 'Secure by Design' status- SBD, this means that systems and security solutions meet police-approved standards.
