To help prevent the theft of bicycles in England, the police advise that a bicycle is engraved with a unique identification number than will allow anyone to identify the probable owner.

The identification numbers used in England are the post code eg RH6 the number for the town and 0HS for the number of the road and then add the house number eg 235.  Combined together that would read RH60HS235 and would allow the police or a private buyer to go to the house and confirm the ownership of the bicycle. This method can also be used for other valuables such as TVs CD players etc.

Perhaps you could design a system that would be apropriate for your city and talk to your local police station?

Meanwhile my wife uses a heavy duty padlock and chain and attatches her bycycle to a tree or lamp post and has not lost her new looking bicycle to date.

In the UK the owner of the bicycle pays to have it engraved with the number by the bicycle shop. Because the number identifies the house then there is no need for the police to maintain a register of ownership.

Provided that you can come up with a workable solution that isn't going to be a drain on public funds then you could expect the police to be delighted to co-operate because it makes their job much easier in identifying stolen goods, makes prosecution easier and therefore acts as a deterrant to would be thieves.

I would guess that if you could design an easy and simple way to uniquely identify goods then the local government might be persuaded to pay for leaflets or whatever to advertise the scheme. You never know, they might even offer you a job in crime prevention.

Think over your ideas carefully and don't rush into it or you will not be taken seriously Think of the objections that you are likely to get and solve them. Think of the advantages for the police and the government.

use more than 3 to 4 chain locks for keeping your bicyle in the public place.
the thief will not like to break 3 clocks---too much trouble.

Is it possible to buy/use a foldable bicyle? So you can always keep it near you.

Government?Which government is so pure to undertake such an obligation?Governments know how to steal and not how to pay.
Use a chain and never leave it unprotected.Only in villages we leave our bikes unprotected.In big cities it is out of the question>
