Drop-in session gives advice on avoiding motorbike theft

Published: Monday 6th November 17

Motorcycle and moped owners are urged to get free advice on how to keep their vehicle safe at a drop-in session in Battersea later this month.

The council’s community safety team and the local police will be in Battersea Square, off Vicarage Crescent on November 25 between 10am and 2pm. They will be chatting to motorcycle owners and giving advice on motorcycle security. Pedal cycle owners will be able to get their bike marked and registered for free.

The event is aimed at the owners of any two-wheeled motorised vehicle. It is part of a roadshow programme by community safety officers and the police including events and online advice to try and reduce the amount of thefts.

The council and Wandsworth police have joined forces on local activities to support the autumn Be Safe campaign, targeting crime including anti-social behaviour, moped crime and burglary.

Moped crime has dropped in the borough recently, but it continues to be a police and council priority. There are simple steps owners can take to avoid becoming a victim, including fitting alarms, locks and trackers and property-marking their vehicle.

Maybe the council should also focus on the amount of vehicle theft in the borough - it is ridiculous at the moment.
