If the marker unit is used then the offender is “Tagged” and can be easily identified by police.
When sprayed directly into the face, the purple liquid dye may startle the attacker and temporarily disrupts the attack.

Sabre Defence ID Operation
How is the spray delivered?
Defence ID Defence Sprays should normally be used at distances of between 1 and 3.5 metres (3 ft – 10 ft) from the offender.
At distances closer than 1 meter (3 ft) there is a possibility that the stream of solution could cause minor discomfort to the eyes.
At distances greater than 3.5 metres (10 ft) accuracy is lost and the spray is less effective, particularly in windy weather conditions.
When the spray is used initially, it produces a fine spray for less than a second as the tube fills, thereafter it produces a stream of liquid.
Defence ID is delivered from a pressurized canister. The design of the canister and degree of pressure affect the amount of the solution discharged and the range and degree of coverage.
The propellant is nitrogen and is not flammable.
The stream type spray was chosen for its accuracy over greater distances, this greatly reduces cross contamination. Where possible, users should attempt to spray downwind.
Spraying upwind may cause a blowback that could affect the user or members of the public (cross-contamination).
It is advisable to shake the dispenser at the start of each day and if possible prior to each use.
The spray should be aimed directly at the subject’s face.
In still air: Users should spray two half-second bursts, with a recommended spraying distance of 1.5m to 2m (4 to 6 feet).
They should repeat this technique if the first application is unsuccessful. If the desired effect has not been obtained by then the user should consider other means of dealing with the situation.
In moving air: A one-second burst may be necessary. When facing more than one-aggressor the user should spray from side to side, at face level with a continuous burst.
IS THE SPRAY EFFECTIVE?
The use of a Liquid Spray should not be viewed as having the ability to solve all problems and it will not be effective in all cases.
Studies from other countries show that sprays do not always produce the desired effects. Limited effect has been noted on three categories of subject:
- People with serious mental disorders.
- People under the influence of drink or drugs.
- People with a positive mental mind set/goal.
CAUTION: Users must not rely on sprays to the exclusion of other control tactics. It is possible that some subjects become more aggressive following the use of the spray. Under such circumstances operators may be required to use other defensive tactics, to establish control and secure the subject.
