 Police Urge Cyclists to Register Their Property

Make? Model? Colour? Serial Number? Frame Size? Wheel Size?  Could you answer these questions if your bike was stolen?

After an increase in bicycle thefts, Melton Police are urging cyclists to make a note of their bikes details so that the police are able to identify it should it be stolen. Inspector John Gray, LPU Commander for Melton Local Policing Unit said: “When it comes to bicycle thefts it is common that the victim cannot accurately describe the item that has been stolen. We encourage people to keep a record of their bicycle, including the make, model and colour, so that they are able to give an accurate description if required.”

Owners can also register their property on a national property database, such as Immobilise (www.immobilise.com) which helps the police identify the owner of lost and stolen property. Along with keeping a record of your bikes details, police also encourage owners to:

·        Buy a good quality lock, such as a Sold Secure approved D-lock, which should ideally cost at least 20% of the value of your bike;

·        Lock up your bike, even if you are only leaving it for a couple of minutes;

·        Secure your bike to a fixed object or rack in a well-lit and busy area;

·        Lock your bike through the frame and both wheels;

·        Remove all detachable accessories, such as lights, pumps, panniers and quick-release saddles

Anyone with information about crime and anti-social behaviour in Leicester, Leicestershire or Rutland is urged to call Leicestershire Police on 101 or Crime stoppers, which is free and anonymous on 0800 555 111.
