Hospital Marks Secure Day For Cyclists19 Aug 2013
A joint initiative between North Wales Police and the security department of a local hospital has helped cyclists feel more secure while leaving their bikes on site during the day.
Glan Clwyd Hospital Security staff joined forces with North Wales Police and the hospital’s own Police Officer PC Jim Jones to carry out a BikeRegister (http://www.bikeregister.com) security bike marking day on the hospital grounds at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd.
The bike marking day was conducted by Police Community Support Officers Peter Markowski and Rebecca Evans and was organised due to the growing popularity of staff members wanting to keep healthy by cycling to work. Staff and members of the public were encouraged to bring their bikes to the hospital to have them security marked by the police officers.
Steve Jones, Glan Clwyd Hospital Security Manager, said: “There are a lot of staff who currently use their bikes to travel to work and cut down on car travel but were concerned about the security of their bikes left on site whilst they were at work. This initiative will go some way in restoring confidence amongst bike owners that their bikes will be a lot safer whilst left at the hospital.
“We are really grateful to North Wales Police for coming on site and carrying out this initiative. Having a security stamped bike gives you that little extra peace of mind and will hopefully encourage people to keep peddling to work in the future.”
