McDonald’s new solution to crime
A new anti-robbery system has been installed in six McDonald’s restaurants across New South Wales.
A new anti-robbery system has been installed in six McDonald’s restaurants across New South Wales by SNP Security. The system installed – SelectaDNA Spray – acts as a crime-deterrent by ‘tagging’ criminals and their stolen goods at the scene of the crime, enhancing the likelihood the offenders will be caught and prosecuted. McDonald’s is the first company in Australia to use the system.
“The spray is mounted on the ceiling and, when activated via a remote control, will emit a fine mist of SelectaDNA’s solution onto the offender, while simultaneously notifying the local police of the incident in real time,” explains Tom Roche, managing director of SNP Security.
“The spray solution glows blue under ultraviolet light and is completely insoluble, remaining on a criminal’s skin for up to two weeks. When the solution is analysed, the unique DNA marker present in each SelectaDNA spray provides the police with irrefutable evidence of the offender’s crime.”
