Over 650 bicycles now registered onto Immobilise by cycle shops in Hull

Humberside Police and cycle shops across Hull are continuing to work together with more than 650 new cycles registered onto www.immobilise.com by stores since the end of May 2014.

Cycle shops across Hull assist customers with registering their newly purchased or repaired cycles for free onto the property registration site at point of purchase. Once they have completed the registration forms with customers in store, Humberside Police Community Safety Volunteers then set up the on-line accounts.
Once registered with an account the owners are then encouraged to add further property onto their personal immobilise account.
www.immobilise.com is a FREE web based property recording system, endorsed and searchable by all UK Police Forces. This is a fantastic tool, used by police across the UK. It allows members of the public to register property details of cycles, mobile phones and other electricals on-line for FREE, which then assists police in returning items to their rightful owners and helps bring offenders to justice.
In addition to Police searching for stolen property, registered second hand dealers and mobile phone recyclers frequently access the data and are assisting in the fight against the market in stolen goods.
If a member of the public was to buy a secondhand item they could also check it for a small cost on www.checkmend.com/uk/, prior to purchase.
To date the following thirteen stores have completed this service for their customers in Hull:
  • Bob’s Bikes, Beverley Road.
  • Cliff Pratt Cycles, Spring Bank.
  • Doug Scott Cycles, Beverley Road.
  • East Coast Bicycles, Princess Avenue.
  • Freetown Sports, Prospect Street.
  • Halfords, St Andrews Quay.
  • Ken Ellerker Cycles, Chanterlands Avenue.
  • Jobes Cycles, Anlaby Road.
  • Jobes Cycles, Holderness Road.
  • Motor World, Hessle Road.
  • Richardson’s Cycles, Marfleet Lane.
  • Star Bikes, Willerby Road.
  • Steve’s Cycles, Chanterlands Avenue.
As part of continued support for tackling cycle crime, East Coast Cycles on Princes Avenue, Hull are holding a cycle marking event for bike owners on Saturday 19 July 2014 between 1000hrs and 1700hrs.
The local Neighbourhood Policing Team will be assisting in cycle marking cycles in a gazebo at the front of the store and with refreshments provided by the store.
Chris Hardy, Hull’s Second Hand Dealers Officer said: “Cycle stores have been quick to embrace the opportunity to support the police in tackling cycle crime. The fact over 650 new cycles have been registered in just over six weeks is an excellent up take. I hope by increasing cycles registered on-line we can reduce cycle thefts in the city, with thieves reluctant to take property which is identifiable and thus can lead to prosecution for stealing or even handling stolen property.
“People really should consider using the website “CheckMEND” to check any second-hand cycle, or indeed any item with a unique serial number, they are looking to purchase. Humberside Police are uploading the serial / frame number of all items reported to us as stolen, onto the database and the use of CheckMEND checks protects members of the public from inadvertently buying stolen goods”.

Immobilise helps Hull bike shops and police crackdown on cycle theft

The Hull Daily Mail has reported that bike  shop owners are joining forces with police to tackle the scourge of cycle theft. Participating stores are encouraging people that purchase new bikes to register them on the online Immobilise National Property Database.

If the bike is stolen and recovered, police will be able to check the database via their NMPR system and return it to its owner.

Chris Hardy, Hull’s secondhand dealers officer, said:

Cycle stores have been quick to embrace the opportunity to support the police with this initiative, which is a fantastic opportunity for their customers to get their cycles registered on Immobilise before they leave the store.

By increasing the number of cycles registered online, I hope we can reduce cycle thefts in the city, as thieves will be reluctant to take property that is identifiable and can lead to prosecution for stealing the cycles or even handling stolen property.

As well as cycles, other property can be registered by the public on to the system once an account has been set up.

Bike theft has been rising in the city with an increase in shed and garage break-ins.

Ainthorpe Primary School pupil Grace Horton, nine, was reunited with her beloved bike three days after a burglary at her family’s home in West Hull. It had been stamped and added to Immobilise during an event run by police at the school.

Her mum Julie said:

She was inconsolable when I told her it had been stolen, even when I said I would buy her a new bike.

She said she just wanted her old one back.

Grace’s bike was found dumped outside a house three days after the break-in last month. The occupant called the police, who checked the their systems and realised it belonged to Grace.

Miss Horton said:

She was absolutely over the moon when the police said she could have her bike back.

I am so pleased she had it stamped, otherwise we never would have seen it again.

Durham Police launch cycle theft campaign

DurhamInfinity4Durham Police have launched  ‘Operation Spoke’ a initiative aimed at reducing bicycle theft across County Durham & Darlington.

As part of Operation Spoke Durham Constabulary will be working closely with local cycle retailers,  Immobilise.com and other organisations to introduce a bicycle marking scheme to property mark and register bicycles in County Durham and Darlington.

The aim of the scheme is that every new cycle sold will be marked and registered to their new owner. Current bicycle owners can also attend their local cycle retailers, police stations and other cycle marking events to have their cycle(s) marked and registered under the scheme.

Crime Prevention Officer PC David Williamson said:

This really is a fantastic opportunity for anyone wishing to protect their bicycle, a simple yet highly effective method of preventing a bicycle from being taken and it takes only a few minutes.

All customers who sign up to the scheme will be asked to complete a registration document, details provided will then be put onto a database so that Police can check the identity of cycles to identify them and to target bicycle thieves.

The officer launching the initiative, Det Supt Kevin Weir said:

The key benefit of the scheme is that should a bicycle be stolen it will be easy to identify by police. This means a stolen bicycle will be easy to return to a rightful owner.

I am also hopeful that the introduction of this scheme will be a deterrent to bicycle thieves. The message I want to send out is simple; if you are buying a new bicycle for Christmas this year or indeed into 2014, please register it with your retailer as part of Operation Spoke. Our aim is to get as many bikes as possible registered under the scheme, reducing the opportunity for bicycle theft across our force area.

People are asked to contact their local neighbourhood policing team, police station or cycle retailer for further information about the scheme.

To Protect it Register it is the Christmas message from Police in Lancashire

Immobilise Preston PosterIn the run up to Christmas, Preston Police are encouraging members of the public to register their new xbox games console or PS4 on the national property register via www.immobilse.com, as soon as they’ve purchased them.

Approximately 340 games consoles have been stolen as part of thefts, robberies and burglaries in the last 12 months, across the whole of Lancashire. Very few are recovered as victims are unable to distinguish their property with serial numbers or unique markers.

PCSO Stephen Connolly says:

People are starting their Christmas shopping and games such as xboxes and the new ps4 will be very popular. The consoles are highly desirable to thieves as they are lightweight, portable and easy to sell on. Registering the items on www.immobilise.com improves your chances of getting it back if it is lost or stolen.

www.immobilise.com can be used by members of the public and businesses to register their valued possessions or company assets and is used by all UK Police forces to trace owners of lost and stolen property.

Preston City Neighbourhood Teams are working with all city centre retailers stocking the consoles, who will

York residents invited to register valuables on national Immobilise database

PCSOs Rachel Shaw and Tony Barge show Tracey Simpson-Laing how they use the new scanning equipment. (Source: York Press)

The York Press has reported that residents worried about their property being stolen are being invited to register their items on the Immobilise National Property Register to make it easier to return stolen goods to their owners.

City of York Council is urging people to register their property free of charge using new technology invested in by North Yorkshire Police and the Safer York Partnership during the week-long national campaign. The authority teamed up with police to provide £36,000 to fund the Hermes and Apollo kits.

Hermes allows the police and other organisations to upload details of property by recording identifying features, size or serial numbers, which can be retrieved from the Immobilise National Property Register that the police are able to access securely via the PNC and numerous other interfaces.

Apollo is a hand-held scanner which the police and PCSOs can use

to scan an item, store its data on the National Mobile Property Register and retrieve the information when suspected stolen goods come to light.

The eleven sessions for the public are being held so people can either have small items such as smartphones or laptops registered, or can bring details – including photographs – of valuable furniture or serial numbers of bikes, for example.

Coun Linsay Cunningham-Cross, cabinet member for crime, said:

Safer York Partnership is keen to use innovative technology to deliver more effective and efficient responses to tackling crime.

By taking a few minutes to register their property on Hermes and Apollo and pick up security advice, residents can not only help prevent their belongings being stolen in the first place, but can be assured that if something is stolen, they are more likely to get it back.

Supt Phil Cain said:

Often the police recover items during searches or by other means, and it’s not always clear if those goods are stolen.

By using the Immobilise register, they can find out instantly. This not only saves officer time, but helps progress investigations and means the rightful owner gets their belongings back.

The sessions will take place at the council’s West Offices, in Station Rise, on the 19th and 20th November, between 9am and 3pm.

There are also sessions at York Explore library, in Library Square, on Friday 21st from 1pm to 5pm, and on Sunday 23rd from 11.30am to 2.30pm.

There will also be sessions at York University Library from today until Friday, 9am to 3pm, or at York Art Gallery, on Saturday and Sunday, from 9am to 3pm.

Police to reunite owners with lost and stolen bikes in Gloucester

bike-theft-415The Wilts & Gloucestershire Standard have reported that Police officers are hoping to get cyclists back on their bikes by reuniting owners with lost and stolen bicycles.

It is an opportunity for anyone who has had their bike stolen recently to come and view the ones that have been recovered at the Police station on Lansdown Road, Gloucester this Saturday, July 13 between 9am and 2pm.

Police Community Support Officer Kim Graham who organised the event said:

We run these viewings on a regular basis and often have some really good results. It is worth popping along as there is a chance you could get your stolen bicycle back.

Anyone wanting to attend must bring their crime letter with them. All those who have reported their bike stolen will have received a letter with a unique crime number on it. Officers will be offering security marking and crime prevention advice as well as encouraging cyclists to register their bikes on immobilise.

We’re also encouraging other cyclists to come along to the station with their bike and we’ll mark it for them and help show them how to register it – this will make it a lot easier for us to return it to you if it does get lots or is stolen

added PCSO Graham.

At www.immobilise.com you can create a free, private and secure portfolio of all of your personal property and adds the items to the National Mobile Property Register (NMPR).

If the bike, or registered item, is then lost or stolen the website can be used to tell the police, your insurer and the second-hand trade to assist in recovering your property and catch the thief.

For further information on NMPR or other crime reduction advice please visit the constabulary website at www.gloucestershire.police.uk and go to the Crime Reduction pages.

first forces in the country to fully embrace a new code of practice aimed at slamming the door in the face of thieves trying to sell stolen goods.

A Home Office Code of Practice encourages forces to get second hand stores signed up to a scheme where they check all items offered up for sale against the CheckMEND database which logs if goods have been recorded as lost or stolen.

The force have hundreds of stores such as Cash Converters, Cash Generator, Cex and other independent second hand stores signed up to the scheme and are launching it in style on 23 January with an Impact Activation Day.

On the day officers across the force will be at second hand stores, schools and shopping centres registering goods onto the immobilise database for free.

Each of the stores who have signed up check items offered for sale against the CheckMEND site. Each search generates a unique certificate number. This can be issued to a potential buyer to prove that at the time of purchase the item was not reported lost or stolen and no adverse information was recorded against it.

David Bursey from Byte size Solutions in Kings Heath, Birmingham said:

Now we can use CheckMEND we can buy items from people who come in off the street. We have been dubious about doing that in the past because we have not been able to trace the history of the item. This has opened up new possibilities in how we can conduct our business that is of real benefit to us and our customers.

DC Vanessa Lewis from Force CID who is heading up the project to get all West Midlands second hand stores signed up said:

Our officers have been passionate about getting stores signed up as one of the main ways we can stop the sale of stolen goods and ultimately deter burglars and thieves.

The more the public register their goods on immobilise, the more effective the system will be.

Sheffield Police recommend Immobilise as cycle thefts continue to soar

Cycle theft in Sheffield is a growing problem according to recent report in the Star. It was reported that only 41 of the 1,595 bicycles stolen from Sheffield city centre in the last 10 years have ever been recovered by police. The number of bike thefts in the city has soared in the last decade, particularly around the railway station and the universities.

With the average stolen bike costing just under £400, that means cyclists in Sheffield have been saddled with a bill of £638,000.

Sgt Darren Nugent, from South Yorkshire Police’s city centre safer neighbourhood team, said:

Over the last couple of years bike theft has gone up and up.

We have caught two or three thieves who were out stealing bikes all the time, and taking those few out of the equation has definitely curbed bike theft.

Officers also have another weapon in their armoury – the tracker bike. The GPS-enabled bikes are locked at theft hotspots and left unguarded to tempt thieves.

Sgt Nugent advised cyclists to spend at least 10 per cent of their bike’s value on a lock and said two locks were always better than one. He also urged bikers to register their property at Immobilise – the UK national property register.

The Immobilise Property Register is linked directly to Police systems helping to quickly identify the rightful owner of recovered property, for more information go to www.immobilise.com/about
