Police would advise bicycle owners to think of ways of securing their bicycle. They should be locked in a garage or shed when not in use or where this is not practical, an approved lock should be used to lock the bicycle in such a way to make it as difficult as possible for the thief.

Owners should record full descriptions of bicycles. Use an ordinary permanent marker on bicycles to write post code / house numbers as this makes it more unique/distinguishable from others.

Permanent ultraviolet security marking pens are available from Lisburn Police Station free of charge.
