Keeping an eye on cycle thieves is the focus of a new crime reduction campaign in Jersey. Our campaign makes use of ‘eye catching’ posters and a proactive program to get every bicycle on the island security marked.
Keeping an eye on cycle thieves
The posters have been installed at key locations across St. Helier, including cycle racks and car parks. This scheme is sponsored by Jersey Crimestoppers and has been used by other jurisdictions who have experienced a marked reduction in bike thefts. The development of this scheme follows the results of a two-year research experiment initially conducted by Newcastle University (external link).
Getting your bike security marked
A number of bike marking events and community surgeries have also been held to get bikes security marked and registered for free at BikeRegister. BikeRegister is an online bicycle identification and registration initiative aiming to reduce cycle theft, identify stolen bikes and assist owner recovery.
