Let's pedal faster

The fifth annual Cycle Crime Conference, hosted by BikeRegister, the national cycle database, in association with British Transport Police (BTP), took place in Birmingham on Tuesday, 25 June 2019.

Following on from last year's hugely successful event, officers from 37 Police Forces registered for this one-day cycle crime conference, along with key partners from the cycling, retail, insurance and security industries.

The theme for this year's conference was ‘Let's pedal faster with speakers highlighting innovative partnership working to tackle bike crime across the UK, as well as the numerous cycle crime reduction and bike marking initiatives being undertaken nationally.
