November 3, 2004—In March of 2000, the United Kingdom's Home Office invested £5.5 million in an innovative anti-theft initiative entitled "Chipping of Goods". According to the website, Chipping of Goods, which used RFID technology to tag, track, and protect property vulnerable to theft, "was established as a result of the need to reduce the incidence and cost of property crime and to reduce the burden on police resources in tracing the ownership of stolen goods." The project has been "immensely successful," with the participating manufacturers, retailers, consumers, and police all benefiting. A case study for each of the eight demonstrator projects has been posted on the site, free for download.
