Graham ' s background covers all angles of security. From time spent in the New Zealand Police / CIB, to Private Investigation and even National and Regional Loss Prevention roles for two of New Zealand’s largest nationwide retailers, Woolworths and The Warehouse.
After visiting the UK and Holland back in 2008, Morrissey and Zuill both agreed that SelectaDNA would provide a holistic crime prevention strategy for deterring burglary and robbery in New Zealand. It was identified that home and business owners needed to fight back against the criminal fraternity and that SelectaDNA would help target harden residential and commercial property.
SelectaDNA was quickly embraced by Police and support was gained to the concept of forensically marking property. The SelectaDNA product was a good fit to the Police’s aims to target harden properties, deterring the act of theft and reducing crime rates across the Country.
Police now carry UV torches as standard issue kit meaning they can scan items and people for SelectaDNA as well as checking for counterfeit items such as Passports, Currency and Drivers Licenses.
New Zealand was the third Country to adopt SelectaDNA, it is now being used in 24 countries across the globe.
