What is Alpha Dot?

Alpha Dots are tiny microdots – just 1mm in diameter – printed with a unique PIN (Personal Identification Number) registered to you.

When applied to your valuables, if they are lost or stolen, the police can return them to you as soon as they are recovered.

Each Alpha Dot pot contains over a thousand of these tiny microdots that can be used to secure and protect every part of a wide range of items.

When Alpha Dot marked property is recovered by the police, it’s easy to find the rightful owner.

How do Alpha Dots work?

The dots come in an easy-to-use glue filled applicator and are simply painted onto your valuables with a small brush. Once applied, the glue is virtually impossible to remove and will last a lifetime, even in the most severe weather conditions.

Your marked items are then registered free on the TRACELINE national database, making it easy to identify the owner of any recovered stolen property.

It’s simple but clever – police only have to find ONE dot to find the owner or make a conviction, the thief has to find ALL the dots you have applied to be safe from prosecution.

If you move house or change your contact details, you don’t need to remove the dots – just update the database. For FREE.
