Deter The Bike Thieves

Alert message sent 12/08/2019 08:33:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

You may be aware that there have recently been incidents of cycle theft in Gosport. The purpose of this newsletter is not to frighten you, but to raise your awareness and ask you to be extra vigilant.

There are certain measures you can take to reduce the likelihood of becoming a victim yourself,
such as...

• Marking your bicycle with your postcode to help deter a potential thief.

• Registering your bicycle on, along with a photo and serial number. This
will assist the police with identifying recovered property. Gosport Police have recovered and returned five bikes in the past two weeks.

• Always securing bicycles to a stand if available. Otherwise use a static object such as a lamp
post or railing.

• Securing your bicycle with a Sold Secure D lock.

• Quick release accessories are vulnerable. Consider replacing the lever with a security bolt or
remove them when leaving the bicycle.

• Lights are made detachable, so remove them before a thief does.

If you have any information regarding bicycle thefts in your area, please contact 101.
