Adhesive Anti-Theft Dots could make it easier to identify stolen property and reconnect such property with the rightful owners. The product is actually a clear adhesive that glows blue under a black light so the dot can be found. Within the adhesive, there are microscopic dots with a personal identification number (PIN) registered to the owner. A scanner can read the PIN and hopefully assist in reconnecting stolen items with their owners. The adhesive and microscopic dots can be removed with solvent if an item legally changes ownership. However, this technology only works if people use the dots and law enforcement as the means to detect and read the adhesive and dots, as well as a way to connect the PIN with a person. So in places like Woodland, CA, adhesive Anti-Theft Dots are being demonstrated during police sponsored crime prevention events and users are encouraged to register items through the Law Enforcement National Recovery Database.
