Bicycle Anti-Theft Initiative Rathmines

Posted 28 Nov 2016 to News by Sarah Scannell

As part of a new Community Engagement Project, Probationer Gardaí from Rathmines Garda Station assisted by the Rathmines Community Policing Unit co-ordinated an anti-bicycle theft initiative. On Friday the 25th of November, members from Rathmines Garda Station placed an ‘Info Bike’ at the Swan Leisure Centre bicycle stand in the centre of Rathmines. This ‘Info Bike’ initiative has proven successful in other Garda districts as a significant deterrent to bicycle theft. Rathmines Gardaí also received assistance with the launch of this project from local Dublin City Council representatives including Public Officer Kevin O’Sullivan and Sarah Scannell Cycling and Walking Promotion Officer . An Garda Síochána Rathmines would like to thank all involved for their invaluable assistance in launching this initiative.
