Fenland cyclists urged to get bikes marked to help ward off thieves
FENLAND’S cyclists are being urged to get their bikes marked to help ward off thieves.
Police officers and partner agencies are holding the free bike marking session in March Market Place on Wednesday from 10am-4pm.
Information about online property registration database Immobilise will be handed out. Registering property on the website allows police to quickly trace the owner if it is stolen and recovered.
Sergeant Sue Roe said: “By encouraging people to register their bikes on Immobilise we hope to stay ahead of the game and stop bike theft.
“Immobilise is simple to use and it only takes a couple of minutes to register your property.

“If a registered bike is stolen and then recovered, it is likely to be quickly reunited with its owner and police will have a better chance of prosecuting the thief.”
