Lake Shore Boulevard East/Leslie Avenue

On Saturday, June 2, 2012, between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m., the Toronto Police Service, in conjunction with Canadian Tire, will be kicking off a Bicycle Registration and Theft-Prevention Campaign at the Canadian Tire Store at 1025 Lake Shore Boulevard.
Each year in Toronto, thousands of bicycles are stolen. Many of these bicycles are recovered within a short time but police are unable to identify their owners.
With this campaign we will try to educate the public in theft-prevention techniques to help to stem the tide of thefts.

The Toronto Police Service, as well as Canadian Tire employees, will be showing theft-prevention tips, safe-riding techniques and giving people the opportunity to speak with TPS bicycle officers.
Canadian Tire will have their “Spin” team giving free bike-safety adjustments. Members of the Toronto Police Service will also be inspecting car-seat installations with our car-seat personnel.
The goals of this campaign are to:
1) Educate members of the public in bicycle theft-prevention
2) Reduce the theft of bicycles
3) Return a greater number of stolen bicycles to their owners
