Free bike marking event in Bromley

PUBLISHED: 12:00 29 June 2012

Cyclists can get their bikes marked for free at a bike marking surgery outside the police station in Bromley High Street on Saturday (June 30).

Officers will be on hand between 11am and 4pm to mark cycles so they can be recovered more easily if they go missing.

The bike marking is free on the day and takes just five minutes, but is not suitable for bikes for children under 11. The bikes are then registered on the database.

Police said that registering details of bicycles online helps police and retailers identify and verify the legitimate owner of bikes and increases chances of reuniting stolen bikes to their rightful owners.

The team will also be registering mobile phones on the database free of charge.

Appointments are not necessary and residents are encouraged to attend and get their cycles marked and phones registered.
