Operation Spoke is a campaign led by Durham Constabulary, working in partnership with Durham County Council, Darlington Borough Council, Local Motion and the Safe Durham Partnership to reduce cycle crime in County Durham and Darlington. The scheme offers security marking and registration to the owners of every cycle in County Durham and Darlington.
Each cycle/scooter will be marked with a unique number and the details of the cycle/scooter and owner will then be recorded on IMMOBILISE, which is a secure National Property Database. A sticker will be attached to deter thieves, and upon registration, you will have access to the IMMOBILISE online account, where you can add other items of property to your records.
By allowing your child’s cycle/scooter to be security marked and registered on IMMOBILISE, you will also help police identify who property belongs to and help them return the property to the rightful owner in the event that it was ever stolen.
This cycle/scooter marking and registration is FREE of CHARGE.
On Wednesday, 5th March, at Timothy Hackworth Primary School your local Police team and Rio, our Bike It Officer, will be marking bicycles and scooters. If you would like to take advantage of the bike marking please contact the school office for more information or download further details and an application form from the events section of this website.
