Barnsley crack down on bicycle thefts
Police are helping bicycle owners to security code their bicycle/s. Police from Barnsley are also handing out bicycle locks. E&L Insurance thoroughly supports this action as any deterrent to thieves is a positive thing. Wombwell’s Safer Neighbourhood Team and Barnsley’s Crime and Safety Group applied to the country’s Police Authority for cash to try to tackle the problem.
They received Â£800 to buy bicycle locks, bike lights and security marking kits for the local community.
PC Paul Bower said “Securing your cycle could make all the different in ensuring your bike is returned to you if you are unlucky enough to have it stolen.”
E&L cycle insurance offer low, cost comprehensive bicycle insurance to protect both you and your cycle equipment. Please visit www.eandl.co.uk/cycle for more information.
