Property Marking

Keep your home and personal possessions safe and secure

Keep your property safe by marking it with SmartWater, a colourless and odourless liquid that forensically links burglars to stolen property or by registering it with immobilise, an online property database to help keep property safe and reunite stolen items with their rightful owners across the county.


Many items of identifiable property are either lost or stolen each year. By taking the time to register property on the Immobilise database, people can take a positive step towards reducing the crime.
Their registered property would be identifiable to all law enforcement agencies across the country. This in turn will help the police reunite property to their lawful owners and will also help to catch criminals.

Almost any possession with a serial number can be registered for free, including:

  • Mobile phones
  • iPods, other MP3 players and games consoles
  • Laptops, computers and PDAs
  • Satellite navigation and in-car equipment
  • Bicycles.


Watches, jewellery, art and antiques can also be registered for a small fee. Users who upgrade can also add photos and certificates of ownership to their account.
Many items of property which are recovered from criminals are not restored to their rightful owners, as without information on serial numbers or property marking police do not know who they belong to.

SmartWater is a colourless, odourless liquid that forensically links burglars to crime scenes.

It can be used to mark property in homes, businesses, schools, churches and other public buildings, if used in its spray form it will spray the burglar committing crime.

Burglars won’t know which property has been marked with it.

If you are found with an item that has been marked, we will be able to tell where it has come from, we will be able to reunite it with its rightful owner and you are likely to face a burglary or handling stolen property charge.

SmartWater doesn’t harm property sprayed.
