Metropolitan Police Release Stolen Bike Data

Metropolitan Police Release Stolen Bike Data

The Metropolitan Police force has been a huge target for our campaign to lobby police forces to release information about stolen bikes, simply due to almost 20% of. Finally after over 2 years of meetings and almost six months of back and forth around a single Freedom of Information, I’m happy to say that our request has been met and we have been provided with data relating to stolen bikes over the last five years (up to Sep 2014, when we made the original request).

This puts the total searchable frame numbers from police data on Check That Bike! at 64,000 (24,000 from the met) which easily makes it the largest stolen bike database in the UK, especially when you look at the other services we work with who add to that pool of data.

Over the next couple of days I will be issued FOI requests to bring all the below forces up to date, and for those forces not on this list because they refused on time limit grounds (no automated way to extract the data) we will be issued a request for a very small sample.
