Putting A Value On Protected Bikes

Officers from MPS Southwark Counter Terrorism Patrol Unit (CTPU) have marked bikes worth thousands of pounds over the last few months.

From May to August this year, they have marked 185 bikes with a retail value of £125,400.

One recent event was a bike theft and safety awareness day in partnership with the British Red Cross at the offices of the Financial Times (FT) newspaper in London, SE1.

PCSOs Ray Bacchus and Simon Johnson marked bikes valued at more than £7,000 belonging to staff members.

PCSO Johnson said: “We were pleased to target harden commuter bikes at the FT against cycle thieves. The bikes registered had a retail value of £7,400 and included 2 carbon fibre road racing bikes which we marked using BikeRegister’s TESA marking kits.”

PCSO Ray Bacchus (pictured with the BikeRegister face paint) added: “FT staff were over the moon at having their bikes marked and registered and the value of the bikes makes it a very worthwhile event for us.”

PCSOs Bacchus and Johnson have been particularly innovative with their bike marking events, holding at least one a week in a variety of locations across Southwark.

They have marked more than 30 bikes belonging to Southwark Council staff worth over £18,500. Another successful event was held for staff at Vodafone where bikes worth more than £6,200 were security marked. The hard working officers also secured bikes worth more than £8,650 at New Caledonian Wharf.

Other marking events have taken them to the Rotherhithe Festival, English Grounds ‘More London’ Estate and to the world-famous Oxo Tower.
