Our officers from the Littleover Safer Neighbourhood Team have arranged a free bike security marking event at the Royal Derby Hospital. 

The event is being held at the hospital site on Uttoxeter Road, Derby between 9am and 1pm on Wednesday, September 20. Whilst it is aimed at those staff and visitors who use their bikes to travel to the hospital, the team are also encouraging local residents to attend. 

 Sergeant Alex Wood, who is in charge of the team said: “Bike marking is important, as it primarily acts as a visible deterrent to would-be thieves. It makes it easier for the bike to be found and returned it to its rightful owner and helps to secure a successful prosecution against thieves.” 

Anyone attending to have their cycle marked should bring with them some form of identification. For further information contact the team on 101 or send them a message online by visiting the Contact Us section of our website here.
