Police in South Derbyshire offer residents further opportunities for free Van and Bike Security
Main article content
Officers from our Safer Neighbourhood teams in South Derbyshire are offering residents free crime prevention advice and security items at two events this weekend.
The events, part of Derbyshire police’s new ‘Safer Together’ campaign, are being held on Saturday, June 15 in the car parks of Sainsbury’s, Civic Way, Swadlincote and the Salt Box Cafe, Derby Road in Hatton.
Officers from the team will be available to security mark bikes. The scheme 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.
Van owners are also encouraged to attend in order to receive free van security equipment.
The team will also be able to offer crime prevention advice on a range of other issues as well as encouraging residents to enrol in our Derbyshire alert messaging system that keeps residents updated on crime and advice in their local area.
They will be at the Swadlincote event between 10am and midday and then at Hatton between 6pm and 8pm
If you are not able to attend the event but would still like to speak to the team you can contact them using any of the following non-emergency contact methods:
