From Sussex Police
We are currently experiencing an increase in bicycle thefts. We recognise that this type of crime can have an effect on people’s day to day life, maybe their transport to and from work or their hobby at the weekend. Because of this we have made this a priority for Brighton Police. In the past week we have had in excess of 25 reports of thefts of bicycles.
Please visit our website here to for advice to reduce your risk of being a victim and how to register your cycle with Immobilise the world’s largest FREE register. This register helps police reunite people with their stolen property.
If you see anyone acting suspicious around bicycles the please call 101 to make us aware. If you see a crime in progress i.e. someone sawing off a lock then please dial 999. All these reports will help us tackle the problem and bring those responsible to justice.
