Since September 2021 Oxford Neighbourhood Watch has been working with the University of Oxford as part of Science Together to understand more about bike theft and theft prevention in Oxford. As part of this work, the team created a survey to gather the experiences of local residents. The answers will help to inform new guidance for local residents on how to keep their bikes safe.

As part of the free ‘Explore Science Together’ Event on 7th June 2022 at Oxford University Museum of Natural History Oxford Neighbourhood Watch gave free safe-bike locking demos and handed out literature on how to help keep your bike safe.
