Last Saturday PC Garry Charnock and PCSOs Julia Short and Chris Monroe distributed the first eleven Selecta DNA Kits to Henbury residents under the Operation Shield initiative of the Cheshire Police & Crime Commissioner which offers us a very substantial discount on the market price . This state-of-the-art unique DNA liquid contains an individual code to mark property in your home garage and shed. The DNA code is registered solely to your address and added to a database so that if anything is stolen it can be traced back to you. Once your possessions are marked stickers can be displayed around your property to work as a deterrent to burglars who may be looking to target your home. Moreover several signs have been installed by the police at entry points to the village making it clear that Selecta DNA is in use in Henbury.

The arrangement for obtaining these DNA kits at reduced price has been made between Cheshire Police and The Henbury Society. The Society has purchased a number kits and the notices and charges residents £10 per kit. As part of Operation Shield the kits must be issued first by the police who then register them on the data base after which you will be contacted by E Mail when you can record what items you have marked, keep your account up to date and delete any items you no longer hold.

We'll be holding another Operation Shield Workshop on Wednesday August 29th 2018 at 10.30 am in Henbury Church Hall so if you've already ordered a kit please come to collect it then . And if you would like to have a kit but haven't ordered one a few extra ones will be available on the 29th. Otherwise please get in touch with the Henbury Society at editor@henbury.org or to Roger Cousin on 01625 610059 so we can purchase further kits from the Police & Crime Commissioner.

This Cheshire Police and Henbury Society initiative is great opportunity to deter crime in our village so please take advantage of it !
