Award for Bike Theft Innovators27 Jan 2017
PC Dave Williamson of Durham Constabulary along with former partnerships liaison officer Ian Martin (now retired) have been honoured for their work promoting a scheme that has slashed the number of bike thefts in County Durham and Darlington.
Both have been awarded Chief Superintendent’s commendations for their roles in Operation Spoke, which was developed three years ago as a response to the soaring number of local bike thefts.
The scheme, which uses BikeRegister to mark and register bikes, is led by Durham Constabulary, working in conjunction with the local council and all local bike retailers in County Durham and Darlington.
There are now over 10,000 bikes registered through the Durham Constabulary scheme.
They are pictured with Chief Supt Paul Beddow, who presented them with their commendations.
