Amarillo REALTORS® Deter Theft with Dots

The Amarillo Association of REALTORS® has partnered with local police to promote the use of DataDots to deter theft and retrieve stolen property. DataDots are tiny polyester tags, smaller than a grain of sand, that can be applied to any personal property. If an item with the dots is stolen, police, as well as pawnshops and scrap yards, can use a blue light to locate the dots and a special magnifying device to find the owner. Dot users register their dot kit online. The REALTOR® association decided to promote the product after a rash of air conditioner thefts from homes and vacant property vandalism. For more, visit:
