Exclusive partnership brings a unique tool to counter thefts and convict
MIAMI, July 9, 2013 /CNW/ - AFIMAC Global is introducing a revolutionary
crime-fighting tool to its clients. Through an exclusive partnership
with SmartWater headquartered in Great Britain, AFIMAC now brings this
globally proven product to the private market in the United States.
"This product is a game changer for our clients who are currently or
potentially faced with the mandate to mitigate risks to property,
personnel, and assets," says Peter Martin, AFIMAC's CEO. "SmartWater's
decision to select our organization for this partnership is a direct
acknowledgement that our client base is second to none and that our
company is the premier choice for organizations with advanced products
looking to bring those technologies to North America."
SmartWater is a clear liquid (real water) that contains a unique
forensic code that lasts under all weather conditions unlike other less
effective DNA-based marking agents. The non-hazardous patented liquid
is sprayed onto offenders, can be brushed or sprayed onto property, and
leaves a mark that is invisible except under ultraviolet black light.
Clients use their own unique forensic formula to identify a
crime-specific offender or valuables at risk to theft, providing an
undeniable proof of ownership that is logged in a global database.
When thieves are sprayed with the liquid during the commission of a
crime, evidence of the non-soluble marking permeates their clothing and
skin, linking them directly to the crime scene for up to 5 years.

for deployment in client locations and will assist law enforcement in
collecting specimens and maintaining the continuity of evidence prior
to its transportation to SmartWater's private laboratory for criminal

of court cases around the world, leading to a 100 percent conviction
"All of our clients are going to have access to this technology," says
Martin. He sees exceptional promise for mitigating the high rates of
theft in a cross-section of companies, especially those in the cargo,
retail, commodity, pharmaceutical, and telecommunication industries.
While the technology and deployment of SmartWater is a private
enterprise, Martin also envisions the product will strengthen AFIMAC's
ties to federal, state, and municipal law enforcement agencies. "We
have cultivated very deep relationships with law enforcement over the
years," he says. "Those contacts are going to be eager to enhance their
ability to reduce organized and petty crimes in their communities."
For years, the insurance and security industry has been searching for a
credible technology that can significantly reduce crime and lead to
convictions. "We believe SmartWater is the answer," says Martin, "and
we are extremely excited to be bringing it to any market that needs
