What is OPERATION SPOKE?
Your local safer Neighbourhood Policing team is currently working together with the Safer York Partnership to launch OPERATION SPOKE. This is an innovative cycle registration scheme aimed at reducing cycle theft throughout the York area.
The initiative will mark your bicycle with a unique reference number and then record your details and your bikes details on a property database.
The process will only take a few minutes and is completely free. You will simply need to bring along your bike and provide a few details along with the make, model and frame number of your bike so that North Yorkshire police can identify it in future. Alongside this all cycles registered as part of Operation Spoke will also be automatically registered on a national property database which will allow other police forces to identify your bicycle if it were to be stolen. Your details will not be shared with any third parties.
At the Bike Doctor Sessions Bike Spoke registration will be available click here for monthly schedule.
You can also contact your local safer neighbourhood policing team who will make arrangements for an officer to visit you and mark your cycles.
Iif you have any concerns or would like any further information regarding Operation Spoke then please don’t hesitate to contact us
