Clubs security boost

SEAGULLS club general manager Andrew Cleverley is confident introduction of the new DNA Guardian security system will maximise the protection of both staff and club patrons.

DNA Guardian is the latest security strategy helping businesses in Australia in the fight against crime and Seagulls is the first business on the Tweed to install it.

It works by spraying criminals or people fleeing from a crime scene, with a colourless, non-toxic substance which marks the perpetrators' skin with an invisible synthetic DNA.

The DNA tracer remains on the skin for up to six weeks and is visible only under ultraviolet light, so suspects can be verified by police.

This will create an irrefutable link between the criminal and the crime scene - leaving them with no escape or false alibi.

The system at Seagulls is being used in conjunction with traditional security systems, such as CCTV footage.

Mr Cleverley said the DNA Guardian system which was installed last month, had yet to be activated at the club. "I sincerely hope that it never does," he said.

DNA Security Solutions managing director Tania Jolley said the company had achieved "fantastic results" for businesses.

"This new technology will have a strong deterr

ent effect on people who think this business is a soft target," she said.

"This technology gives the police the forensic evidence they need to link the thief to the crime scene at the time that the crime is occurring."
