Since I wrote about Operation Spoke here on this blog, PCSO Mark Peacock has been in touch with me via Facebook to provide me even more information on the operation.
If you are active on Facebook, you can like the police's page to receive updates right in your news feed. Operation Spoke is a high priority for the constabulary as bike theft is a big problem. Every bicycle retailer in County Durham and Darlington can mark your bike with the FREE marking or paid marking kits from BikeRegister. All you need to do is take your bike to the shop and they will do the rest.
For Bishop Auckland, the points of contact for Operation Spoke are PCSO Mark Peacock and PCSO Carl Blenkinsopp.
I saw the video below just today which demonstrates the attitude of bicycle theft in society today. This needs to change, so help me help Operation Spoke raise awareness in people and change this attitude.
