Herts Police officers have hailed their property and bike marking event in Welwyn Garden City a “great success”.

It was held at Herts Police premises in Bridge Road, and saw Welwyn Hatfield North Safer Neighbourhood Team officers offering the public the chance to have their property marked.

During the event 59 bikes were security marked, as were two scooters, two electric bike batteries and a mobility scooter.

Six people also registered their property on www.immobilise.com, which is free and helps officers identify and return stolen items and catch criminals.

Eleven people also signed up to Neighbourhood Watch’s OWL (Online Watch Link) system.

Safer Neighbourhood Team David Stansbury, said: “We were really pleased with the amount of people who attended on the day to get their bikes or property marked.

“Property and bike marking can help to keep new possessions more secure because if they are stolen, there is more chance we can reunite them with their rightful owners if recovered.

“It can also act as a deterrent to thieves.”
