Our next cycle viewing and coding session will be on Saturday 14th August between 9am and 2pm at Cheltenham Police Station on Lansdown Road.
The viewings are an opportunity for anyone who has reported their bicycle stolen to attend to see if it has been recovered.
At July`s event 12 people attended who all received details of the National Mobile Property Register (NMPR) and security coding kits.
Police Community Support Officer Kim Graham, who organises the event said; â€œAlthough we were not able to reunite anyone with their bike last month it was good to give those people the details of NMPR.
â€œWe now have over 1,100 people who have registered through us with the NMPR thanks to the local cycle shops and police operations in the Town Centre.
â€œWe would urge anyone who has had their bike stolen recently to come on Saturday, there is a good chance that you could get your bike back as well as receiving some very useful tips on how to keep it safer in future.â€
Anyone wanting to attend must bring their crime letter with them. All those who have reported their bike stolen will have received a letter with a unique crime number on it.
Officers will be offering security marking again at this month`s event, they will also be encouraging cyclists to register their bikes on immobilise.
At www.immobilise.com, you can create a free, private and secure portfolio of all of your personal property and adds the items to the National Mobile Property Register (NMPR).
If the bike, or registered item, is then lost or stolen the website can be used to tell the police, your insurer and the second-hand trade to assist in recovering your property and catch the thief.
