Summer bike thefts: Between May 1 and Sept. 7, Protective Services has received 57 bicycle-theft reports.
Here are some tips to prevent bike thefts: lock up your bicycle with a quality U lock or chain lock, do not rely solely on a cable lock to secure your bicycle, do not leave your bicycle parked overnight, and register your bicycle on the Saskatoon Police Service website. Registering your bike will record the serial number, make and model in case your bicycle is ever stolen.
