Protect your Bicycle from theft with free security label

Free Bicycle Security Label The National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC), in a joint project with the Singapore Police Force (SPF), launched the Bicycle Security Label last year. Bearing the SPF and NCPC logo, the label contains a unique set of identity numbers, is temper proof and has security features, similar to high security items like passports, that make it virtually impossible to replicate. The unique serial number helps bicycle owners and Police to identify their bicycle if it is stolen.

The labels are just one method of crime prevention. It works in conjunction with other measures such as not leaving the bicycle unattended, unchained and in an isolated area. Bicycle owners are encouraged to approach any Neighbourhood Police Centre (NPC) with their bicycle to collect Bicycle Security Label. This FREE service is also available at the following venues:

Jurong West NPC : 700 Corporation Road S(649818)

Hong Kah South NPP : Blk 510 Jurong West Street 52 #01-90 S(640510)

Boon Lay NPP : Blk 210 Boon Lay Place #01-00 S(640210)
