  • Police are handing out free motorcycle alarms?

    Interesting article on the police reaction to the rise in theft rates of motorcycles and scooters.

    WA is Australia's hotspot for motorcycle and scooter thefts after a 50 per cent rise last financial year, which has prompted police to offer owners free alarms.
    As well as handing out alarms provided by the council, police will check more engine and chassis numbers.

    ...Is anyone else thinking of the episode of The Simpsons where Chief Wiggum has people with fines/convictions attend Police Headquarters to collect the boat they've supposedly won?

      That article is suspiciously short on detail of where to collect said free alarms....... I'd be interested to see what they are offering.

      It's a good idea imo...... way too much bike theft here.

        Cant wait to get stopped by the cops and handed a free alarm,

        do we have to break a law to get pulled over and given a free alarm? or will they just use the loud speaker and say hey pull over and take your free alarm ,,,or else.
        National pride should not be a crime!.

            Belmont Council did have free scooter alarms a while ago, but nothing for motorcycles.

                    Maybe call your local council instead, if that's who's originally supplying them?
