Richland Co. Sheriff's Office debuts 'CopDots' to help with thefts

Posted: Updated:

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.
