Local neighbourhood police team visit school to protect bikes

A team from Rugby Police Station recently visited The Avon Valley School and Performing Arts College to add security markings to bikes belonging to the school’s students.

The school was initially approached by Cllr Wayne Rabin, councillor for Newbold and Brownsover ward, who helped to organise the event in collaboration with the local police team and school. On the morning of the bike marking event around 30 students opted to protect their bike by having it security marked and added to the BikeRegister.

Registering on BikeRegister means an owner can be reunited with their bike in the event of it being stolen. The details of bikes registered are held on a secure online database which all UK police forces have access to.

Alison Davies, Headteacher, said, “It is always wonderful to see that many of our students use a bike to travel to and from school. This is good because it’s sustainable, eco-friendly, and has health and wellbeing benefits. We’re, therefore, very grateful that the local policing team took time to visit our school, engage with our students and help them to protect their property from theft. We hope the team will visit us again to mark even more bikes.”
