Smartwater - for Neighbourhood Watch - a unique and individual way to protect your home and possessions.


Smartwater is a clear forensic solution which is visible under ultraviolet (UV) light and contains a unique chemical DNA code that links property with it's rightful owner. Once applied to any item Smartwater is virtually impossible to remove, thereby making it undesirable to thieves because it increases their chances of arrest and conviction. As a result, Smartwater acts as a powerful criminal deterrent.

Smartwater helps the police to recover stolen property, and increases the chance of a succesful criminal prosecution.

Northamptonshire police have committed to checking all arrested individuals and recovered property using ultraviolet light and linking any traces of Smartwater back to the crime.
