Bike marking

With posters situated across St Helier to warn cycle thieves officers are now asking for the public’s help – to ensure all their bikes are marked.

Starting on Sunday officers will be offering islanders the chance to get their bikes registered for free at a number of locations.

The idea is to ensure that every bike on the island is registered, this means that if it is stolen, officers will have the best chance of reuniting it with its owner.

Islanders are being encouraged to bring their bikes to a number of marking events and community surgeries and get them security marked and registered for free on bikeregister.com.

Bikeregister is an online bicycle identification and registration initiative aiming to reduce cycle theft, identify stolen bikes and assist with owner recovery.

The first surgeries will be held at –

• Grande Marche – Rue La Masurier – March 9th, 1pm until 5pm.
• West Park – March 10th and 11th , for cyclists on their daily commute, between 7.30am and 9am and 4.30pm and 6pm.

People can also pop into the Enquiry Desk at Police Headquarters to get their bikes marked, just bring in the completed form at the bottom of the page.

Acting Inspector Jez Payne said: “We often find that when members of the public report their bike stolen they do not know what their serial number is or sometimes what their bike looks like. As you can appreciate this makes it increasingly difficult for officers to reunite the bike with the owner if it is subsequently recovered.

“We would like everyone to pop down to one of these marking events and let us register your bike for you. It should only take a few minutes of your time and hopefully will help cut crime in the island.”
