Covington police suggest ID engraving on bikes
Comment at Facebook Covington USA page >
Bike riding and warm weather are a natural combination.
But if your bike is stolen, hiking will be more your speed over the next few months.
The Covington Police Department suggests all bike owners engrave their bikes. It's very simple to do and if needed, owners can go to the local precinct and borrow an engraving tool.
Officers say using the ID numbers from a driver's license or Kentucky ID card is the best way to mark your bike.
Never, Never use a social security number as an ID number.
Another suggestion from officers is when storing a bike in a shed or garage, lock and attach it to a lawnmower or other heavy and bulky equipment. Thieves do break into sheds and garages.
Attaching a bike to a piece of heavy equipment makes it more difficult to just walk or ride away from the area.
For more information on how to safeguard your bike and other valuables in your home, garage or shed, contact one of the Police Department's Community Outreach Officers at (859) 292-2257.
