Finding effective solutions to combating bike theft has always been a top priority of your San Francisco Bicycle Coalition. We believe that new legislation before the Board of Supervisors has an opportunity to bring much-needed resources to solving the bike theft problem, and we encourage you to share your thoughts and experiences to help shape this legislation.
Next week, the Board of Supervisors’ Public Safety and Neighborhood Services Committee will be considering legislation to establish neighborhood property crime units at each of the ten district stations of the SF Police Department. These units would specifically focus on bicycle theft, bringing more resources locally to respond to incidents and increase investigation and hopefully recovery.
Recognizing that this remains a top advocacy priority of our membership, we have written this letter in support of bringing more resources to combating bike theft, and we look forward to working with our Supervisors on this legislation.
Have you been a victim of bike theft? Join our advocacy and push the City to dedicate more resources. Write a letter today to share your experiences and give feedback as Supervisors consider this legislation.
