Officers from our Darley Safer Neighbourhood team are joining a resident's play scheme to offer free bike marking.
The team will be with local community group ‘Six Streets’ at their ‘Playing Out’ event on White Street, Derby on Friday, May 3 and will be offering free bike marking to those that attend.
Bike marking works by marking the bike with a unique code linked to the owner’s details on a secure database. If their cycle is stolen and subsequently found, we can use this code to ensure the bike is returned to its rightful owner and prove it is stolen.
The marking by www.BikeRegister.com is usually £12 but is being offered free by our Safer Neighbourhood team.
PCSO Linda Ball, from the team, said “I am really grateful to Six streets for the invites to their event and am pleased that I am able to offer the bike marking for free.
“This type of security marking acts as a deterrent to bike thieves and helps us to prove that any recovered bikes are stolen and enable us to return them to the owner.
“Of course I will also be available to talk to residents about any other policing concerns that they may have.”
Linda will be at the event on the corner of White Street and Park Grove between 4pm and 5pm. Anyone attending to have their bike marked should bring with them some form of identification.
