Putting the brakes on bike theft in Gloucestershire
A campaign has been launched to combat a growth in bike crime, which saw more than 6,000 bikes snatched across Gloucestershire in the past three years.
This summer Gloucestershire Crimestoppers joined forces with Gloucestershire Police and the county’s cycling community to promote bike security and protect cyclists of all ages from bike theft.
A series of events took place in locations throughout the county advising on the steps cyclists can take to reduce their chances of becoming a victim.
One of the aims is for every bike to be linked beyond doubt to a specific owner through the national Bike Register found at www.bikeregister.com. Gloucestershire Crimestoppers funded cycle marking kits available at all events to register and security-mark bikes. People were able to bring their bikes along and get them registered and coded free of charge.
Advisors and specialists from across the county provided advice and guidance, including police officers, Police Community Support Officers, the Gloucestershire Bike Project, Gloucestershire Crimestoppers and Council representatives.
