PALM BAY, Fla. — Residents in central Florida will be the first in the U.S. and Canada to use a new high-tech tool using a DNA-like adhesive to combat property crime.
The Cop Dots DNA program, Palm Bay Police Chief Doug Muldoon said, allows people to mark their property with a unique (and very tiny) number sequence that can be scanned by police who recover stolen goods.
“The fact that we can readily identify property wherever it is makes a big difference,” Muldoon said during a news conference Tuesday announcing the program’s rollout. “This technology changes the way law enforcement approaches property crime.”
