Incidents of bicycle thefts have been steadily rising across the Municipality. In most cases the bicycles have been left unlocked, making them an easy target for thieves.
Although a lock is not a complete deterrent for a thief it is still best way to ensure that your bicycle is not stolen. Putting it indoors in a locked shed or your basement are also good ways to keep your bike safe.
Many times bicycles are recovered and the police cannot return the bicycle back to the owners because the owner failed to keep record of the serial number, or take photos of the bike to prove ownership.
