More than 80 per cent of the village’s households have now protected their possessions with SmartWater.
Each bottle of the substance, which is invisible and can’t be removed, leaves a unique “fingerprint” that shows up under ultraviolet light.
Thames Valley Police offered bottles at a heavily subsidised price following a spate of burglaries last year.
Now they are proposing to put signs at the northern end of High Street, in Eastfield Lane and at the toll bridge to the south. These will need planning permission from South Oxfordshire District Council.
Rresidents can still get SmartWater at the reduced price of Â£10. Call 101 and ask for police community support officer Mark Bell or email mark.bell@thamesvalley.Â pnn.police.uk
