Op Hurricane 2 - Bike security

This week in our five-week Operation Hurricane 2 campaign, we are focusing on bike security and the simple things you can do to reduce the chances of your bike being stolen.

Four weeks ago Neighbourhood Watch SA in partnership with SA Police launched our five-week campaign to support SAPOL’s Operation Hurricane 2 which is targeting crimes against property.

We kicked off with business security, then we covered vehicle security, followed by home security, and this week we are focusing on bike security.

Some simple things for you to consider include:

  • Engraving or marking your bike frame (near the serial number) with an ultra violet pen, microdot or by other permanent means with your driver’s licence number prefixed by the letter ‘S’ for South Australia.
  • Taking a photograph of your bike.
  • Never leaving your bike unattended and unlocked.
  • Always locking your bike frame and both wheels to a secure object.
  • When at home, securing your bike in a locked shed or inside your house.
  • Downloading the ‘Bike Passport ‘from SAPOL’s website, which can be used to record identifying details of your bike, which will help us return it to you in the event that it’s stolen.

Check out our handy Bike Security video clip.

For more information take a look at our range of bike security booklets and fact sheets:

Each week the campaign on Facebook and our website will provide helpful videos and short tips you can follow for protecting:

  • businesses
  • your vehicle
  • your home
  • your bike
  • building sites.

As Neighbourhood Watch volunteers or people interested in keeping your community safe, you can do your part – you don’t have to go to extremes to protect your property. All you need to do is take some simple crime prevention measures to protect your homes, businesses, property and vehicles. You can also report suspicious behaviour immediately by calling the Police Assistance Line on 131 444.

As you may have already seen, SA Police have produced six Neighbourhood Watch SA Weekly Bulletins which are available in the Member Resources section of this site.
