Hounslow Bike Theft Reduced By 44%

16 Oct 2012

Officers from Hounslow Safer Transport Team (STT) have been working hard to deter bike thieves on their patch and have successfully reduced bike theft in Chiswick (a particular hotspot area) by 44%.

The officers have been marking bikes since 2011 with BikeRegister, the UK’s leading online bicycle registration initiative, which is owned and managed by Selectamark.

The team arranges regular bike marking sessions within the local community as well as setting up crime prevention stalls offering bike marking and arranging events at a local independent bike store.

Acting Police Sergeant Craig Monks and colleagues from Hounslow STT recently recovered a rare orange Brompton cycle which had been stolen from the Brompton Bicycle Factory in Brentford, Middlesex.

The foldable bike was discovered at the home of a known bike thief and as it had been marked by police, was instantly traceable back to the factory.

The factory owner was said to be very pleased with the recovery as he described the bike as “unique and priceless.”
