The Richland County Sheriff's Department introduced Friday a
crime-fighting tool to help burglary victims reclaim their property.
CopDots is the first of its kind in South Carolina.
CopDots are tiny discs, about the size of a
grain of sand and are endorsed by Law Enforcement, according to CopDots.com. Each
tiny disc holds a unique PIN (personal identification number) linking your
property to you within a global database accessible by investigating law
enforcement when they suspect goods to be stolen.
CopDots are sold at participating Lowe's stores.
