POLICE have been handing out special DNA marking kits following reports of burglaries in the Great Sankey area of Warrington.
Due to recent reports of burglaries within the area of Hood Lane North local officers have been out on foot handing out the DNA Property Marking Kits to residents within the area who have been affected.
Kits have also been provided to residents in the surrounding area.
Foot patrols have also been carried out in Liverpool Road, Thornton Road, Freckleton Cloe, Eagle Sports Club and surrounding areas.
Criminals know that DNA is the police’s most powerful weapon in convicting criminals. Therefore the DNA fear-factor is highly understood and acts as a huge deterrent.
Criminals view items marked with SelectaDNA as too high risk and are further put off from stealing them as they have little or no resale value.
