SINGAPORE - A new online database system that tracks bicycle ownership and screens if a bicycle is marked as missing or stolen was launched today.
The public system complements the use of existing bicycle security labels. Owners can start registering their labels with the system at www.togoparts.com/bike-label. Those without the labels may collect them from any Neighbourhood Police Centre.
New Lock Lah bicycle racks and customised anti-theft signages for bicycle bays were also unveiled at the Anti-Bicycle Theft Public Campaign event today.
Mr Tan Kian Hoon, chairman of the National Crime Prevention Council, said: "The new bicycles bays, online registration system and security labels are three innovations which were developed to prevent theft of bicycles.
"They were conceived with the convenience and peace of mind of all bicycle owners in Singapore.
"All three measures will complement one another to protect against theft of bicycles and I urge all cyclists to utilise these innovations and spread the word to prevent bicycle theft."
