Police advice about garden security
Protect your garden this Christmas
Posted: 23 December 2011
The Colyers Safer Neighbourhoods policing team are holding a bike marking event to help safeguard what can often be an expensive gift.
Each year around 20,000 bikes are stolen across London and although the number of bikes stolen in Bexley is relatively low new bikes at this time of the year are a likely target.
Many of the bikes recovered by police are unmarked, cannot be returned to the owners and have to be disposed of. Properly marking a bike and registering it makes sense and aids police in returning it if recovered after being stolen.
If you are giving someone a new bike for Christmas make a point of joining the Colyers Safer Neighbourhoods team on Wednesday 28th December between 12 noon and 4 pm at Pier Road, Erith (outside the Safer Neighbourhoods police base).
If you are unable to attend please register any bike with the Metropolitan Police preferred database Bike register.
