Putney Safer Neighbourhoods raise awareness of bike thieves in the area
and measures they can take to make their bikes secure.
Putney Police Safer Neighbourhood Team need the bike riders who live or travel through the area to know that by taking security measures to protect their bike, it makes the lives of bike thieves a lot less rewarding.
The summer months usually see a lot more people riding their bikes and criminals trying to steal them. Don't let yours be one of those stolen this year. Think about buying a good solid lock and registering your bike details with the immobilise.com website.
Thamesfield’s Sergeant Sean Mooney, said: “Get a good lock and use it to lock your bike to a secure bike stand. The immobilise website is a service supported by the MPS, which allows people to register their bikes and other valuable items.”
· Lock your bike before leaving it, even if it is only for a few minutes.
· Ensure you have recorded the make, model and serial number of your bike. The police hold a large number of recovered bikes but are unable to trace the owners. Don't let your bike be one of those untraceable bikes.
· Use a UV pen to write your postcode on your bike.
· www.immobilise.com - follow the guide on the website to register your products.
