NHW Data Tag Packs

Wymeswold Village Neighbourhood Watch have kindly been offered 200 free Datatag kits which are used to mark property such as electrical items (TV’s, camera, computers, laptops, tablets, smart phones, etc), furniture and other items of value such as family heirlooms.

The system makes use of microdots placed on the items of interest and are added by you – no one comes into your property. The items are then registered online to Datatag’s database so that should you be unfortunate to experience a burglary there is an increased chance that items recovered will be returned to you. The scheme includes signage stating that your property is security marked. The company will also provide street signage to accompany the village neighbourhood area watch signs thereby acting as a wider visible deterrent. There is no annual subscription fee (unlike other schemes) and the information is stored securely – this system has police approval. If you are interested in a kit then please get in touch with Garry Boorman via
