The machine can mark car trailers, chainsaws, and many other pieces of machinery found attractive to those persons with uncontrollable ‘sticky fingers’.

Property theft remains one of the biggest security challenges facing Ireland today. Every year within every community in Ireland, households and small businesses experience the trauma of being the victim of such thefts and every year hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of stolen property continues to be recovered from criminals. Alas, all too often there is no way of identifying the rightful owner of such property.

What is Property Marking:

Property Marking involves a community led crime prevention program run in partnership with the county-based Joint Policing Committees, Local Authorities and community organisations, particularly Community Alert and Neighbourhood Watch groups.
This approach has already been tested in a number of counties in Ireland and has been found to be extremely successful.

The program involves marking property with the owner’s Eircode number, which is a unique identifier. The mark that is made on the property is a physical mark which is etched into the property. It is very difficult to remove and can be repeated a number of times on the one item.

The mark is made by a specially designed machine which embosses the property item with small dots in the pattern of your Eircode.
