As so many bikes are being stolen across the area, can we please ask everyone who owns a bike to please take a photo of it ? Just prop it up against a wall and take a photo, then email it to yourself. If it is ever stolen, we have some means of identifying it - particularly if it has distinctive features. What would be even more helpful, is if you turn it over and take a photo of the frame number ? It is underneath, stamped into the chrome flange, between the pedals. It is not too much to ask that you take a few photographs. We did manage to return one bike this week recovered from an offender, because the real owner had done exactly this, so could supply us with a full description - colour, make and model and - they even had the frame number.
If our staff see someone out and about - that they know - on a bike they think is not quite appropriate for them, they do a stop check on their ‘Reasonable Suspicion’ that the bike may be stolen. They then do a check on the bike in the police computers, by colour, make, model and frame number. If it comes back as reported stolen ……. The offender is caught bang to rights. A really positive result, not only for the aggrieved, but also the community - if we can have the offender put away for theft - but also from the police officer / PCSO who did the stop check. They can go home feeling that they have done a really good days work.
PLEASE - HELP US TO HELP YOU
