DeterTech at Police Scotland’s Secured by Design Event

DeterTech is pleased to announce it will be showcasing its PID site security and SmartWater forensic marking technology at Police Scotland’s Secured by Design event, taking place from 28-29 November. The solutions form part of DeterTech’s end-to-end risk management portfolio.

SmartWater is a tried and tested component of crime prevention strategies, having been proven in domestic and commercial environments for over 20 years. It is the only forensic marking technology that retains a 100% conviction rate in contested court cases, with scientists only requiring a trace of SmartWater the size of a full stop to irrefutably link people or property back to the scene of the crime.

It is guaranteed to last for a minimum of five years in all weathers, even withstanding explosive blasts and harsh solvents, ensuring police can always hold thieves to account when stolen property is recovered. Already widely adopted, successes include working with police and industry to achieve an 86% reduction in cable theft, a 57% drop in catalytic converter theft and a drop in repeat domestic violence offences by 69%.

DeterTech‘s PID security range – best known for the industry-leading PID360 – is a fully-managed solution for temporary site security. The completely wireless system provides both deterrence and round-the-clock monitoring for sectors including construction, retail and rail. With all footage visually verified in real-time in DeterTech’s state-of-the-art BS50518 Alarm Receiving Centre.
