McDonald’s Restaurants has tested an invisible spray which is sprayed onto offenders as they flee the crime scene. The DNA spray remains on human skin for weeks and on clothing for up to six months.
Tracey Monaghan, McDonald’s Director of Quality Assurance, said ‘the trial of SelectaDNA has been a great success and the system could be rolled out nationwide to deter and reduce crime’.
A number of McDonald’s restaurants have recently been robbed with staff being both physically and psychologically harmed.
The spray has been used in Britain and Europe. Police use an ultraviolet light to check suspects for evidence. The spray, which is non-toxic and non-allergenic, meets Australian standards.
