BICYCLES

Bicycles are one of the most targeted items by thieves. In recent years there has been an increase in the theft of pedal cycles nationally and locally. More than half of the bikes are stolen from the owner's property. Use good quality locks/chains that meet 'sold secure' standard.

Bicycle crime prevention to help protect your property can be found on the West Mercia Police website (Crime & Safety section).
