FORENSIC SECURITY MARKS CRIMINALS
At Raptis Rare Books, a leading rare and antiquarian book gallery in Florida, CSI Protect’s Criminal Tagging System uses forensic marking to tag criminals with an invisible mist. The forensic mist remains on a criminal’s skin and clothing for weeks. Using a special frequency light, law enforcement can identify the perpetrator long after the crime was committed, enabling them to link a suspect to a specific crime. The forensic markers are specific to each location, with each site given a uniquely engineered marker. The technology aids in crime prevention, boasting a 40 to 86 percent decrease in robberies, burglaries, and high-value thefts. It can be triggered in different ways, including a panic button, intrusion detection systems, remote video monitoring, and more.
