Come to park for bicycle engraving

GLADSTONE Police are encouraging the public to have their bicycles engraved for free at Lions Park on Saturday.
Each year the Gladstone Police recover a number of stolen and lost bicycles with owners unable to be found.
Gladstone Police Beat officer-in-charge sergeant Scott Black said all owners should ensure their bicycle was engraved.
He said the police would engrave the bicycle with a personal identification number (PIN) and then enter the PIN on the police property system.
'The benefit of having your bicycle engraved is that if it is stolen and then turns up we can track down who the owners are,' he said.
He said people who were unable to attend the engraving session or wanted other property engraved were able to make an appointment to have their items engraved.
