The national police crime prevention initiative, Secured by Design (SBD), is using National Bike Week to ask cyclists to think about the security of their bicycles.
More than 500,000 bikes are stolen every year according to the British Crime Survey, and numbers are rising annually. The SBD website offers tips on how cyclists can keep their bike safe & secure, reducing the chances of them becoming a victim of crime.
SBD seeks to achieve sustainable reductions in crime through design and other approaches to help people live in a safer society. Whilst police are unable to recommend specific products, SBD can act as an effective gatekeeper and signposting service to our 650 member companies and their products, which meet our rigorous Police Preferred Specification standards.
Members’ products range from secure and robust doors, windows and locks through to cutting-edge IT products, CCTV components, and shutters and barriers. SBD is the only way for companies to obtain police accreditation for security products in the UK.
