Thames Valley Police Station gives Trimetals stamp of approval

Thames Valley Police has taken advantage of a new storage solution which should prevent their bicycles from being stolen by even the most hardened bike thieves.

Officers recently moved into a new neighbourhood station in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire but, as space was more limited in this premises, they chose to invest in a high security Trimetals storage system.

This design, the Protect a Cycle Pro, was probably chosen by officers because it’s the only product of its type to be awarded level one and two security ratings by the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB). Moreover, it is backed by the Secured by Design initiative (the official Police Preferred Specification).

Explaining what this means, Andrew Smith, the marketing director at Trimetals stated, “the Protect a Cycle Pro features the highest product specification available in the UK, and we’ve worked hard to put it through the most rigorous testing procedures. Our customers have confidence that our products are up to the job, and we believe that’s why we are a preferred supplier to many large organisations.”

According to the latest statistics, Thames Valley Police dealt with more than 400 reported instances of bicycle theft in June. However, as this new storage system has endured heavy duty assaults with implements such as bolt cutters, drills, and pipe wrenches, their bikes should certainly be safe from any enterprising thieves.

The Protect a Cycle Pro is not just available to police forces, individuals can discover more information about this model by visiting
