MMU Security Notice – Cycle Theft


Security Services would like to advise all that there have been a number of reports recently concerning the theft or attempted theft of cycles parked at the University and that in the main criminals are targeting high value cycles and those that do not have robust D-Locks. Security who are working in partnership with the police to reduce this type of crime would like to appeal to cycle owners to help us by adopting the following guidelines to protect their property.
  • Always secure cycles in designated cycle parking areas
  • Do not use sub-standard cable type locks these are easily forced
  • Consider using D-Locks to secure cycles to designated cycle racks
  • Gold standard locks with a cable can be purchased from Security Services for the discounted sum of £10
  • Try to park cycles in cycle pods or at cycle racks
  • Consider registering cycles with Immobilise, a National database that the police use when checking stolen/found cycles
  • Report all suspicious activity to Security on 0161 247 1334
