IN response to a huge spike in bicycle thefts over the last 12 months Crime Reduction Officers in North East Division are running a series of bicycle security events across communities in Grampian this summer.

As part of the campaign we would like to give school age children, initially Academy age, the opportunity to have their bikes added to the Police approved BikeRegister scheme. By simply adding owner and bike details to an onlline database it makes it much easier for bikes to be returned to their owners if stolen.

The scheme will initially target schools and workplaces, so keep an eye out for an opportunity to participate. You can also complete the attached form for any children that would like to be part of the scheme and email back to NorthEastCrimeReduction@Scotland.pnn.police.uk.

Once we receive the data, we will enter it into the system within seven working days. The cycle owner is notified by email with details of how to access their account. Once logged in, they can check the details on the account are correct and then print out a log book.
