SmartWater Neighborhoods Are On Display
Once SmartWater is applied, the liquid can only be seen under a unique light. This marking allows stolen items to be identified more easily and will help our detectives investigate these crimes. Residents can mark everything from their cellphones to televisions, computers, expensive tools, bicycles, lawn equipment, and beyond. SmartWater is a silent and invisible witness. Thieves won't know if the items they are stealing have the liquid on them or not, but we will when we locate the property. This will help our detectives identify the stolen items, their rightful owners, and help link the crimes to the burglars and thieves so we can make arrests and put criminals behind bars.
This is just one of the new tools that Chief Hank Stawinski has deployed in our 21st century fight against crime within Prince George’s County.
