The United Kingdom has begun using new technology to prevent domestic violence. For the first time in the country, a man has been jailed through using ‘SmartWater’ experimentally.
Smartwater is a special liquid that can be seen under ultraviolet rays. The country’s police are examining whether this technology can ensure the safety of women.
This forensic fluid stays on the body for about six weeks after spraying and lasts longer on the clothes. Apart from this, it can be known by looking at the batch number, which batch of SmartWater has been thrown. Each batch is completely different.
The victim, a woman from West Yorkshire, was recently convicted of a felony. She is one of the 200 people who were allowed to use this SmartWater technology.
The SmartWaters package includes a hand-held canister spray. As a result, a special gel is attached to the door and handle. When someone enters the house, they are automatically sprayed.
Detective Superintendent Lee Berry, a West Yorkshire police officer, was the first to think of this security measure. He told the BBC that most of the time it was difficult to find the perpetrators of domestic violence. Because most of these crimes happen behind closed doors.
Smartwater spokeswoman Rachel Oakley said, “CCTV footage often covered criminals’ faces; But once identified with a drop of SmartWater, it is easy to identify him for many days.”
