Cyclists are being given to get their bikes security-marked and they will be able to get advice on cybercrime, as well as home and shed security at a pop-up shop in Chesterfield.

The Chesterfield Town Centre Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team will be hosting the event between 10am and 2pm, on Thursday, April 27, in the Vicar Lane Shopping Centre.

They will be setting up in Unit 4, off Steeplegate - formerly Vision Express - and residents and shoppers will be invited to drop in and speak to officers to find out how they can reduce the risk of becoming a victim of crime.

People can also bring their bicycles along for officers to security mark.

The event has been set up as part of a series of pop-up crime prevention shops in Chesterfield town centre.

PCSO Hayley Grundy of the Chesterfield Town Centre Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “Our last event in March was really popular, so we’re delighted to offer residents and shoppers the chance to call in and see us again.

“We’ll be offering advice on a wide range of crime prevention issues, from online cyber safety to home, vehicle or shed security.

“You can also come along and speak about any concerns or issues with a local officer and cyclists can bring their bikes for security marking ready for the warmer, lighter months.”
