93% Reduction In Kidderminster Bike Crime24 Jan 2019
West Merica Police have achieved an impressive 93% reduction in bike crime in just three months in Kidderminster.
In October 2018, bicycle theft in Kidderminster town centre was considered high. Following a concerted effort to tackle bike crime in the area including the use of BikeRegister bike marking, a 93% reduction was achieved to January 2019.
Kidderminster SNT also patrolled the town securing bikes with D-locks and checking any which appeared vulnerable.
During a covert operation against bike theft, police made three arrests that resulted in 12 weeks in prison for the offenders.
Only 4 bikes were stolen in November 2018, 1 in December 2018 and 1 in January 2019, equating to a 93% reduction in bike theft.
