BIKERS across Chesterfield are being invited to a security day.

The police plan to cut thefts will offer reduced price property marking kits and security equipment for motorcycles and scooters.

The event, at the B2net stadium on Sunday, April 22, will take place from 10am to 4pm. Motocyclists can get their bikes marked and receive crime prevention information from police. Other security equipment will also be on offer.

Alpha Dot, a company that specialises in security marking for motorbikes, will be at the event and offering their kits at a reduced price.

The kits place a unique forensic code on items making it easy for the police to detect stolen vehicles, parts and property.

Police Community Support Officer Steve Bircumshaw, who is organising the event, said: “As the weather improves people are using their motorbikes more frequently and they are often left vulnerable to criminals.

“We want people to be security conscious and this event is about increasing awareness. If a thief knows your bike is traceable and security marked, the chances are they will leave it alone.”

There will also be a free prize draw with prizes including two match tickets for Chesterfield FC.
