Co-op adopts SmartWater to help deter ATM crime

The Co-op has teamed up with SmartWater to roll out a new deterrent, which links criminals back to the scene of their crime.

SmartWater has adapted its dispersal technology to ensure that criminals and stolen cash are marked with invisible gel. With a reduction in ATM crime of more than 90% when the technology was piloted in 2016, it is now being rolled out to all cash dispensers located at Co-op food stores. Chris Whitfield, Co-op's director of retail and logistics, said: "This proven technology utilises the latest ATM security capabilities and innovations to cut crime, providing a secure way to deliver a key and convenient service in local communities."
