My Community Voice Kent - Bike Thefts

31st October 2023

Bike Thefts

We continue to suffer from bike thefts, both pedal cycle and motorcycle/mopeds.

Remember to apply the same rules at home as

you do when out and about.

Thieves will take an opportunity if they see one,

no matter where it is. • Store your bike in a garage or shed that is

kept securely locked.

• No garage/shed? Take your bike inside or

secure it in exactly the same way as you would

away from home; remove valuable parts and

lock the entire bike to a immovable object.

• Consider installing security lighting around

your property to help deter thieves, and

restrict access by keeping boundaries secure

and gates locked.

• Encourage neighbours to be vigilant and to

report any suspicious activity to the police.
