Protect your Property with SmartWater

Protect your Property with SmartWater The Rochford District Community Safety Partnership (CSP)* works towards reducing crime, and the number of victims of crime.

To help tackle dwelling burglary, we are giving away property marking kits in areas most recently affected by this offence. A proven deterrent to burglars, SmartWater® forensic marking system enables you to safely mark up to 50 items of property with traceable liquid which is then exclusively registered. Property marked in this way can then be traced back to the loser in the event of it being stolen and recovered by police. Further details about the system can be found at The product is commercially available and retails at approximately £60 – but is being offered in the target areas free of charge by the CSP to help prevent you from being a victim of crime. Police Community Support Officers or accredited volunteers will call to deliver the product and give you simple instructions in how to apply it to your property. We hope to commence distribution from January. If you are interested in taking up this offer please contact the Community Safety Team at Rochford District Council on 01702 318103 or by email [email protected] if your home isn’t in a target area but is within the District we are able to offer the kits for a small charge.
