Hampshire Constabulary, working with Student Watch volunteers and marking kits supplied by Portsmouth City Council are popping up once again at lunchtime today to offer free cycle marking pop-ups around campus.  Bring your bike to the Library between 1.30- 3.30 pm today and get it security marked and registered on the national property database.

Portsmouth Police are working with the University of Portsmouth to offer free bicycle security marking events. The next event is on Thursday 10 November from 2-4 pm, and takes place in the Richmond Building forecourt, Portland Street.
