The security of bicycles at two universities has been tackled in a joint initiative between Devon and Cornwall Police and the university service provider FX Plus.
All students and staff at Falmouth and Exeter universities are being given the opportunity to have their bikes marked with BikeRegister (www.bikeregister.com) kits in a scheme funded by local police and FX Plus. Officer for the universities PCSO John Dukes, who initiated the marking scheme, said: “Our universities are ever expanding and spread out between Falmouth and Penryn, two towns in local proximity to each other. The students often have to travel between the two towns for their study and accommodation facilities.
“There are upwards of 5,000 students here and in line with the Government’s green policy, all the students are encouraged to bring their cycles with them when they arrive. As a result there are high numbers being used around both towns.
“My aim is to have as many cycles marked up with BikeRegister kits as possible to prevent them being attractive thieves.”
