We are encouraging Jersey residents to pass on anonymous information about cycle crime. When the sun comes out in Jersey, more of us get on our bikes but the number of bike thefts increase. In the last two years an average of 140 bikes per year were stolen in Jersey. Cycle crime involves the theft of bikes as well as the handling of stolen bikes or bike parts.
We are currently advertising on a popular online classified website which follows on from last year’s sponsorship of the ‘Staring Eyes’ posters at key cycle racks across St. Helier.
Take simple cycle security measures
You can reduce the threat of cycle theft by taking some simple simple security measures, including:
- Lock your bike using a substantial lock or ideally two different types of lock.
- Leave it in an area with visible CCTV.
- If your bike has detachable parts - take the part with you or secure it.
- Record your serial number and register your details on Immobilise.
- Do not leave your bike unattended for long periods of time - like overnight or over a weekend.

Protecting the Jersey cycle community
“Jersey has a thriving cycling community and we need their help to improve bicycle security and to speak out about cycle theft in Jersey. We would urge anyone who has information about those involved in stealing bikes or handling stolen bikes and bike parts to share it with us anonymously.
"We don’t ever take personal details and we can’t trace information given online or on the phone. We don’t want to know who you are, just what you know.”
