Irvine, California (PRWEB) April 09, 2015
Anti-Theft Dots along with the Portland Police Bureau introduced a new technology to help prevent property crimes. Focusing specifically on their increased bike theft problem, the technology referred to as Bike DNA will now be available in bike shops throughout Portland, and soon across the country.
Bike DNA is just one application of many that are designed to deter property theft. The technology is a special adhesive that contains thousands of microscopic dots. Each dot has a unique PIN that is registered to the user. With all Anti-Theft Dots applications, the user will also have ability register their PIN into the Law Enforcement Database (LENRD), a secure database accessible to over 36,000 law enforcement agencies.
The Portland Police Bureau will use Anti-Theft Dots technology as part of their increased efforts to reduce bike theft. Stolen bikes are being chopped up to avoid detection and sold for parts. The Anti-Theft Dots can be applied to all components of the bike, including accessories giving law enforcement the ability to identify ownership.
According to the Department of Justice the number one crime statistic across the country is property theft. Over a $1 Billion a year are reported in stolen property, and many sources would suggest that number is double considering many victims never report the theft to law enforcement. Of all the property recovered only 15% is ever returned to the rightful owners.
Anti-Theft Dots President, Jeff Juniper states, “There is no better place to introduce our newest application, Bike DNA, than in Portland Oregon, the bike capitol of the country.” Juniper continued, “The success of the program goes beyond reducing property theft, some of our most exciting success stories come from Police Chiefs thanking us for how this program has engaged the community to participate and help them in fighting property theft together.”
Sgt. Michael Frome of the Portland Police Bureau comments, “The Portland Police Bureau is always open to innovation. Anti Theft Dots has reached out to us with an offer to supply us with some technology that will help identify stolen property, and we are happy to partner with Anti-Theft Dots. We look forward to recovering stolen property and getting it back to its proper owner.”
The company offers several applications beside the newest Bike DNA product, including a DNA High security labels for single application assets, DNA wand that will mark over 150 different items, to a Stealth Spray product for metal theft, industrial applications and construction sites. The company will introduce another new product in the next 30 day called, AssetTrac, a global GPS tracker packaged with their microdot applications in the package.
