Dot Peen Property Marking

Alert message sent 04/01/2019 11:56:00

Information sent on behalf of Cleveland Police

Every year Cleveland Police recover thousands of items of property and in many cases despite the best efforts of officers the owners of the property are never located.

In an effort to change this on Thursday 3rd January 2019 the Hartlepool Neighbourhood Police Team held a property marking event at the Police Station between 10:30am and 12:30pm where 34 items were permanently marked with the Dot... Peen machine.

Things which were marked included bikes, scooters, games consoles, tablets and laptops as well as a Segway and a phone. These are 34 items which could be returned to their rightful owners if they were stolen and subsequently recovered by police.

Do not fret if you missed out and were unable to attend as further events will be held throughout the year in venues across the town. Keep an eye on the @HartlepoolNPT Facebook page for future events when they are scheduled and feel free to give us a like to see the latest posts.  We will publish on Cleveland Connected also.

In the meantime if you wish to secure your items consider taking a household audit by noting the makes and models of property as well as serial numbers and identifying marks which can be referred to if necessary. You can also register your property with

A short video of the machine in action is included on the Hartlepool Neighbourhood Police Team page and an image of the end result can be seen below.
