Police have confirmed they will roll out a high-tech property marking system across Derbyshire to help protect farmers and rural communities.
Derbyshire Constabulary said it will launch a county wide property marking system using technology from the Construction Equipment Security and Registration Scheme (CESAR) - established in 2007 to help identify stolen machinery - and ‘Datatag' - security system suppliers and partners of the CESAR scheme - across the whole of Derbyshire this year.
Police said they had undertaken successful trials in Bolsover and would now introduce the scheme to a further six authorities in the Derbyshire region.
The system uses electronic transponders - hidden inside vehicles -which possess a unique identification code and tamper resistant label warning read by a hand-held scanner used by police.
