Mid Ulster MLA Ian McCrea is calling on Cookstown bike owners to head down to the PSNI’s free BikeRegister evening in Coagh on Wednesday.

The event, on February 24 at the Presbyterian Hall on Urbal Road in Coagh, has been organised in an effort to help police prevent rural crime.

And they are encouraging everyone with a bike which is not currently marked, to come down between 5 and 7pm and get it registered.

Speaking about the opportunity, DUP MLA Ian McCrea said: “Rural crime is unfortunately an ever present scourge and to help combat that, Cookstown Police have arranged a bike marking event.

“BikeRegister have supplied police with preferred theft prevention products, such as security labels, permanent marking systems, covert marking products and RFID tags.

“I would encourage anyone with a bicycle to register for this event to help protect against those involved in crime.”
