Hi Visibility and Covert patrols:
Officers are stopping cyclists across the borough and checking bikes against databases which have led to arrests and recovery of bikes. We have worked with the British transport police on their operations.
Bromley STT are working with Bike register and have supplied a number of bike stores with crime prevention leaflets with bike register details to supply to people at the point of sale.
BIKE REGISTER – IT DOES WORK!!! – We have identified that criminals who deal in the sale of stolen bikes are aware of bike register and will not deal with bikes that are marked and will check the bike register system.
GET YOUR BIKE MARKED!
Lock you bike up don’t give them a chance!!!
Lock your bike to a bike rack or solid object.
Use a substantial lock. D locks are better and lock both wheels if possible.
