Cycle Watch

Those of you braving the cold and snow last Saturday may have noticed the two Police Officers outside the cycle shop - no, they weren't hunting cattle rustlers or trail tax dodgers but promoting Cycle Watch. It’s a scheme for registering you and your bike so if the unthinkable happens, there is more chance of you getting it back if it’s located.

The benefits of Cycle Watch are you will receive free updates (via text or email) alerting you to local bike crime and suspicious incidents. The police will offer advice on crime prevention and a contact number should you need to pass on information.

Should your bike get stolen, you can send an electronic picture of it to Cycle Watch which will be circulated to all members by email to help improve the chances of recovery.

For further details contact Vicki Singleton (Chase Watch) on 01543 464218
or email victoria.singleton@staffordshire.pnn.police.uk

  1. thank you for putting this information on your site. I was one of those frozen officers promoting the cycle watch and immobiler schemes. We were delighted to see so many cyclists interested in these schemes and we urge as many to register their cycles on the site as possible. It is totally free to do so and will undoubtedly assist us in reducing the amount of cycles that are currently being stolen. Please feel free to call me if you need any further information.
