Crimestoppers Property Protector with a little help from Tesco. All it takes is a little bottle and a simple dab of Crimestoppers Property Protector to give ALL your valuables a lifetime of protection.
Householders have been given a new way to protect their valuables following the launch of a unique product; Crimestoppers Property Protector, available from Tesco Extra stores across the UK.
In a strategic first, with the overall aim to widen the availability and reduce crime in our communities, Stealth Mark has teamed up with Tesco in bringing its exclusive Crimestoppers branded product being sold by the Tesco Extra Tech Team within 82 stores across the UK.
With home burglaries currently taking place at a rate of more than one a minute, according to a British Crime Survey published by The Home Office in July this year, Crimestoppers Property Protector is an effective low cost solution to deterring crime. Each bottle provides up to 200 applications and comes with deterrent stickers for your home and valuables. Now available at Tesco Extra for less than 10p an application - it represents great value.
Crimestoppers Property Protector is manufactured by Stealth Mark and is a patented, police approved technology licensed under the ACPO, Secured by Design accreditation scheme. It is a clear liquid solution; each bottle has a unique code from combination of microparticles. Simply by dabbing a small amount of Crimestoppers Property Protector onto valuable items you give them their own coded fingerprint.
Crimestoppers Property Protector is a buy once protect forever on their lifetime free property registration database which provides for ease of identification by police to aid recovered stolen items to be returned to the rightful owner.
Actor Graham Cole, who played PC Tony Stamp in ITV1’s The Bill is supporting the venture and will appear at selected in-store demonstrations, he said: “I played the part of a police officer for 27 years and I’m now pleased to support a real crime-fighting effort. Crimestoppers plays a vital role in helping make our streets safer – and the Tesco Extra initiative with Crimestoppers Property Protector makes it that much easier to make your valuables safer too.”
Deputy Chief Executive for Crimestoppers, Dave Cording, said: “This is a first for Crimestoppers and we are encouraged that Tesco has agreed to stock this unique product across the UK within their stores.”
Clive Smith, Chairman at Stealth Mark Europe said: “It has been a long held vision to make our technology widely available and at no cost to the public purse, the Tesco Extra listing is a first move towards helping a reduction in the cost and burden that crime inflicts on our local communities, in fact, you could say every little dab helps”.
