PALM BEACH, Fla. - Sept. 19, 2019 - PRLog -- The first forensic Criminal Tagging System, from SelectaDNA, in Florida was installed at Raptis Rare Books on Worth Avenue, Palm Beach, Fla.  The system was installed by CSI Palm Beach, a Certified Dealer for CSI Protect.

The high-tech crime-fighting technology utilizes forensic marking (synthetic DNA) to stealthily tag criminals with an invisible forensic mist. The solution remains on a criminal's skin and clothing for weeks to months, helping police identify them after the commission of a crime using a special light.

Primary focus of technology is crime prevention, with documented reduction in robbery, burglary and high-value theft from 40 to 86 percent. If a crime is committed, the technology enhances law enforcement abilities to more effectively identify criminals, and items, linked to a specific a crime scene.

Each unit of the technology contains a universally unique forensic code (sequence) associated with a specific location.  The codes are never replicated and irrefutably connects criminals to specific crime scenes. The forensic markers are manufactured in an ISO 17025 accredited laboratory that replicates the form and functionality of human DNA.

"We have some of the world's most valuable rare books, not only in terms of historical significance but also in monetary value," said Matthew Raptis, owner of Raptis Rare Books, one of the world's leading rare and antiquarian book galleries.  "I became enamored with the technology during my regular travels throughout Europe as I learned about its success in preventing crime.  This technology will add an additional layer of security to reduce the likelihood of theft, burglary and robbery."

"We're pleased to help protect Raptis Rare Books' immense and impressive inventory of literary gems," said Joe Maltese, VP Marketing for CSI Protect, exclusive provider of SelectaDNA technology in the U.S.

A sampling of technology's users include: Louis Vuitton, Richard Mille, Chanel, Tag Heuer, LVMH, G4S, 7-Eleven, T-Mobile, Securitas, GlaxoSmithKline, RBS, Lloyds Bank, McDonald's, KFC, Balfour Beatty, Shell, Texaco, Pandora, Bank of New Zealand, Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority and countless others.

While relatively new in the United States, the technology has been in use for more than a decade in 33 countries on five continents. It is now quickly gaining support with law enforcement and loss prevention professionals in North America.

The Criminal Tagging System can be activated via numerous modalities including panic button, money clip, remote video monitoring, burglar alarms, access control and intrusion detection systems.

The technology is officially endorsed by the Law Enforcement Exchange (LEX), comprised of law enforcement agencies in Florida.  LEX and CSI Protect's partnership helps synergize crime-fighting outcomes for crime prevention and criminal investigations.
