The heart of the Datatag system is an electronic transponder that is designed to be hidden on the property that is to be protected. These tiny transponders possess a unique identification code that can be 'read' by a hand-held scanner used by the UK's Police forces. This means that the lawful owner of any Datatagged property can ALWAYS be identified by the Police, even if all other identification numbers have been removed.
Criminals know that if they are caught with identifiable property then a conviction is sure to follow. Datatag has a 100% success rate, and the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has never lost a court case in which Datatag has been used in evidence for the prosecution - a fact that criminals are well aware of!
Each Datatag system is supplied with tamper-resistant warning decals that let the criminal know that your property is protected by the Uk's leading electronic anti-theft deterrent, and this is usually enough to convince them to go looking for an easier target.
As well as featuring electronic transponders, the Datatag systems also include additional components such as Datadot microdots and etching stencils. These allow you to mark virtually every major component on your property, and make it 'too hot to handle' for the professional criminal!
