“Dodge County Sheriff’s Office to introduce a new technology to partner with community to combat property theft”
“DNA for Property” is a special forensic adhesive that can be applied to all types of valuables. The adhesive is swabbed on an item and will permanently dry clear and invisible to the naked eye. Suspended in the adhesive are thousands of “microscopic dots” .05mm in size. That is smaller than the size of a grain of sand. Chemically etched into the microdot is a unique alpha-numeric PIN (personal identification number).
The PIN is registered in a national database linking the PIN to the user contact details, essentially personalizing all marked items. Every item that is swabbed with the DNA adhesive can be entered into the users account, including make, model, serial number if applicable, pictures and other property characteristics.
The DNA for Property Kits will be offered free of charge through a partnership with the insurance industry. Residents just need to set up their free account at www.protechDNA.com. The kits, which are a $40 value will be mailed directly to the user’s address. There is a one-time set up and shipping fee of $5.99. A portion of the fees will help provide equipment to law enforcement around the country.
Dodge County Sheriff’s Office will have detection equipment to determine if property has been marked with the DNA adhesive and special readers to view the PIN on the microscopic dots. The PIN will be entered into a secure law enforcement database to retrieve owner contact information.
This is very effective resource for law enforcement to link recovered property to the true owner in real time. With thousands of law enforcement agencies utilizing this technology, property that is stolen and then recovered outside of Dodge County, including around the country, will still have the ability to determine ownership and contact the rightful owners.
With a large percentage of stolen property never getting back into the hands of law enforcement, users that enter specific details of each item marked with the DNA adhesive into their account can soon be notified if their property is sold at a pawn shop. This new feature will match property details against pawn transactions and notify law enforcement and users.
The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office is one of the first agencies in Wisconsin to use the technology as their primary crime prevention effort and will officially kick off the campaign introducing the technology to their residents in the next few weeks. Currently there are over 5,000 law enforcement agencies utilizing the technology to help deter property theft and increase the return of recovered items.

SAFE HIGHWAYS BEGIN WITH YOU
As we are now into the summer months and travel becomes more and more frequent, the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office would like to again request the public’s assistance in reducing crashes and the severity of crashes. As we have pointed out in the past, when you increase your speed, you increase stopping distance when an obstacle presents itself. Increased speed also increases the force of impact and severity of injury if you are involved in a crash. While we are asking the public to slow down, we are also asking that everyone please take extra time to stop at intersections, wear your seatbelts, avoid distracted driving, and please do not drive after consuming alcohol, impairing prescription medications or drugs.
We have taken steps to provide reminders to drive carefully. This includes the placement of traffic enforcement zone signs in hopes of gaining voluntary compliance, increased visibility of squad cars in high crash areas, and directed patrols by deputies through on duty and grant funded efforts. However, the most impactful thing we can do as a community is by simple compliance with the law. We may not be able to control what others around us are doing, but we can do our best to control our own destiny by driving safely. With everyone’s cooperation, we can reduce severity of injury in crashes that do occur. By changing your driving habits, you will never know if you have prevented a crash because you likely will not have been involved in one.
Please drive safely on our streets and highways and do your part in ensuring everyone makes it home safely at the end of every day.
Questions may be directed to Sheriff Dale J Schmidt.

PRESS RELEASE : Tire Safety
Be “TireWise” for a Safe Summer on the Road
Joel Kiesow, Coordinator for the Dodge County Traffic Safety Commission says, whether you’re planning a family adventure, getting ready for a beach trip, or just catching up on vehicle maintenance, don’t neglect your tires. Yearly estimates back up that statement. On average:
• Drivers in the United States put more than 2,969 billion miles on their tires,
• There are nearly 11,000 tire-related crashes, and
• Almost 200 people will die in those crashes.
Many of these crashes can be prevented through proper tire maintenance—including tire inflation and rotation—and understanding tire labels, tire aging, and recalls and complaints. Kiesow is reminding drivers that proper tire maintenance is essential for safety and for getting the most mileage from every gallon of fuel or every electric vehicle charge.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA’s) SaferCar app provides real-time vehicle safety information to consumers from NHTSA's SaferCar.gov site. Consumers can search for current recalls through the app, including tire recalls!
