SmartWater CSI, a forensic coding theft detterent company, said Monday that Robert A. “Bob” Butterworth has joined the company in Fort Lauderdale. The parent company, which is headquartered in the United Kingdom and recently introduced its products into the United States, said its track record of reducing property crime over the past sixteen years has included more than 1,200 convictions worldwide.
Butterworth, who was Florida’s longest serving attorney general, has received national recognition for his success in enforcing victim and consumer protection, the company said.
SmartWater products are forensically encoded liquids that are used by residents and businesses to mark property and assets that may be stolen during a burglary, as well as a spray system that can be used for covert police operations and commercial businesses. The non-hazardous liquid is virtually impossible to remove, and leaves a long-lasting identifying mark that is invisible except under ultraviolet black light, the company said.
The City of Fort Lauderdale, the Fort Lauderdale Police Department and SmartWater CSI recently announced a partnership introducing this proven forensic coding theft deterrent to catch and put pressure on criminals and the fences that buy stolen property, SmartWater CSI said.
