Bike Marking initiative

Alert message sent 11/12/2020 15:20:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary

Dear Residents,

The coronavirus crisis has resulted in us buying bikes in huge numbers, but in tandem with increased sales has come an epidemic of thefts. With this in mind and the possibility that Santa has got you a new bike for Christmas your local Safer Neighbourhood Team will be completing bike marking with BikeRegister stickers starting on the 27th Dec running to the 31st Dec.

This will be held outside the old enquiry office at the front of the police station on Cotton Lane.


27th Dec

28th Dec

29th Dec

30th Dec

31st Dec

To comply with the ‘Rule of Six’ 2 Officers will be running the event, so there will be no more than 6 persons attending / in the vicinity of the event at any one time.  This includes the Officers – for example 2 Officers running the event, only 4 members of public can be in attendance

To limit any direct contact with members of the community a one-way system will be in place, which will include signs, whereby an officer will take your bike inside apply 2 highly durable Tamper Resistant QR barcode labels. These can be scanned with a smart phone to identify your bike on the BikeRegister website, and determine whether it is stolen.
A 2-metre distance will be maintained at all times with officers and members of the community. Officers will be wearing PPE (face masks & gloves) during their normal course of duty due to interaction taking place.

Please do not attend if you are suffering with symptoms or if any household member is symptomatic.

Thank you
