Cyclists can get their bikes marked with a special crime prevention code at a free event at Knott End library next weekend.
The local neighbourhood police team will be marking owner’s postcodes on to cycles so that there is more chance of them being identified and returned if they are ever stolen.
The event will take place from 10.00am – 12 noon on Saturday 21st July at Knott End’s Lancaster Road library.
PCSO Emma Brown, Knott End neighbourhood police team, said: “This is the fourth year running we have held such an event at a Wyre library and we usually get a lot of people coming along to have their bikes coded.
“We would also encourage cyclists to take a few simple crime prevention measures, like using a chain through the wheels and frame of their bike, so that they can help us keep incidents of bicycle thefts low.”
