Abal Security equips door supervisors with Offender ID spray to deter attacks

Posted 27th January 2010.

Offender ID is a portable spray that tags an offender so that they can be identified even if they flee the crime scene.

It contains Redwebs redDNA, a unique biosynthetic DNA which has three key identification marks. Firstly the spray is red and so is easy to spot on offenders clothes or skin (this can last for more than three days). It is also visible under standard UV light and contains a unique encrypted biosynthetic DNA.

The unique DNA in each can of Offender ID is registered in an independent database so it can easily be traced to a specific incident. This provides a robust chain of evidence that can help secure convictions and deter criminals. redDNA and Offender ID is accredited by Secured by Design, an initiative which ensures that security equipment meets Police standards.

Commenting on equipping his door supervisors with the Offender ID sprays, John Calleja, Business Development Director, Abal Security, said; We are often faced with offenders offering or using aggressive and violent behaviour, and sometimes glasses and bottles are used.

With lots going on, tracking who was involved can be difficult. We work very closely with our local Police force and we are expecting that the Offender ID will help us and the police track down perpetrators and also act as a big deterrent. Why risk starting trouble when you know you could be marked with evidence?
