Local officers from The Metropolitan Police Service have been running a series of Bike Marking sessions to help combat bicycle thefts on the Acton Gardens Development and surrounding areas.
At these workshops, run by local PCs and PCSOs, members of the public can have their bikes security marked and registered onto the Bike Register online database.
PCs and PCSOs also offer cycle security advice as well as general crime prevention advice and members of the public are given crime prevention materials to take away.
These workshops can also take place during various weather conditions under the branded Acton Gardens / Met Police Gazebo which allows for Bike Marking to continue regardless of weather conditions.
PC Garrett Speers commented, “We have received great feedback that this is been carried out with L&Q/Countryside funding, and residents are pleased that something is being done to address bike thefts in the area”.
Workshops will be hosted on a series of dates. Please keep a look out on the Acton Gardens Website for future dates, Acton Gardens Community Centre notice board as well residents' noticeboards.
