Crime prevention advice is also available, on how to keep your home and garden secure, and keep your bicycle safe.
Residents have the opportunity to speak to Wyke Neighbourhood Policing Team PCSOs Jeremy Daives and Vikki Burnham at Beverley Road Baths, Hull, on Saturday, 11 August, 2012, between 1300hrs and 1500hrs, where they will be on hand to discuss crime prevention advice and carry out cycle marking.
PCSO Ruth Leake, of Riverside Neighbourhood Policing Team, is also holding a cycle marking event next to the play park in West Park, Hull on Tuesday 14 August between 1100hrs and 1400hrs.
Anyone under the age of sixteen needs to provide consent from their guardian before any cycles are engraved by police staff.
Humberside Police encourages residents of all ages to ensure all of their belongings that are stored in out-buildings such as sheds and garages are secure and are weighed down with heavy objects, and to fit alarms where possible.
Crime Reduction Officer Andy Allen, said:
“We have now reached the time of year when children have a number of weeks off school and will be out and about on their bikes, often leaving them outside, on a field whilst they play football or just outside the shop for two minutes. Simple measures like having the bicycle stamped could mean that if stolen, it is returned to its rightful owner.”
