Officers from North Walsham Safer Neighbourhood Team will be at Sainsbury s in North Walsham from 3-5pm on Saturday June 22, marking and registering bikes. PCSO Bill Kerr, who is running the event, said: Bike marking can act as a strong deterrent to thieves, making it harder to sell on and easier for police to identify if it is stolen and later recovered. We want to help you to avoid becoming a victim of cycle theft.
Safety tips from the police include: Make sure your bike is in good working order and always use bike lights when travelling in the dark or in conditions of reduced visibility. Use a lock to secure the bike-stand, wheel rim and frame together.
Register your bike using a third party service.
