    Still no mention of all the bikes being stolen!

      I contacted the South Broxtowe Police team on your behalf. PCSO Andy Ward has advised:
      We accept that bikes are stolen, with some regularity. Tools at our disposal are utilised, such as CCTV and a ‘capture bike’ and, as a result, some offenders are apprehended.
      Sadly, not all offenders are caught and not many bikes recovered which is why Paula has reminded people on the last update to use ‘D’ locks where they can to ensure bikes are as difficult to steal as possible.
      Unfortunately, what we do see, whilst on patrol, are sometimes very expensive bikes secured with a thin cable lock which provides very little resistance against a pair of bolt croppers.
      We would advise people to do their research and spend at least 10% of the value of the bike, on a good lock.

      • Pat Ratcliffe says:

        Sue, your comment isn’t really a proper reply to the what JudyS posted. Is it good enough to say that bikes are stolen, regularly, and then leave them out of the posted statistics? Is it acceptable to suggest that victims are to blame in some part because they haven’t secured their property in a better fashion?
        Proper statistics, please, properly reported with proper and diligent attempts to recover property stolen, please.

    Pat, I brought Judy’s comment to the attention of our NPT and published the response that I received.
    Our quarterly community safety meeting for May was cancelled because of the Election so I haven’t received the usual updates since January when other thefts (cycles would be included) in South Broxtowe totalled 137 for the final quarter of 2016.
