Aloha All:

Good information and stats.  Maybe we should have HPD weigh
in on this also.  16% of stolen bikes returned to owners is not a very good percentage. The thieves are good and way ahead of the game.

Aloha,

Wayson

You're so very right Wayson, 16% totally sucks !   And it is not until just recently, after two new young people chose to become a part of the MACB and the bicycle movement here in Honolulu, and in Hawaii, Soha & Sentwali, that pro-active measures are now being initiated !

And only because:
> I ran into both Soha & Sentwali late one night in front of the new Walgreen's on Beretania and we shared with one another, "things bicycle".
> I commented on their very cool Cannodale bikes and Sentwali shared with me that he had just completed building, from scratch, the beautiful Cannondale that he gifted to his wife Soha.
> that beautiful new, handcrafted Cannondale was then stolen from Soha.
> it was that larcenous deed that drove them both to attend a meeting of the MACB; something I had been encouraging them to do for some time.
> at that meeting the seed was planted and began germinating ~ and Soha and Sentwali formally conceived and initiated their new subcommittee:  the "BTPT - Bicycle Theft Prevention Team".
> some concerned and "serious players" (about 10 of us) showed-up on a Sunday afternoon at the "Fresh Cafe" on Queen St. at the first BTPT subcommittee meeting (you know who you are: Yamato, Val, Daniel, Tony, Colin, and the rest).

The end result is that some serious "pro-active" measures and initiatives are now actually taking place because of the good research work that Soha, Sentwali, and Colin have done.  80 bicycles are stolen in London, England each and every day !  The documentary: "Gone in 60 Seconds" is an important one and I encourage all of you to watch it.  It was circulated to all of you weeks ago.

I'll do whatever I am able to help this subcommittee to get the HPD, the City of Honolulu, the State of Hawaii, the MACB, and HBL involved in helping to curb bicycle theft in Honolulu and in Hawaii ~ this as well as encouraging more and more people in Hawaii to enjoy the healthy benefits of riding a bicycle, either for exercise and recreation, and/or as a very practical alternative for commuting to and from one's workplace...

Cheers,

Aloha Colin:

Mahalo to you and Soha for sharing your research and views at our last MACB meeting.  I agree that the 16% return rate on stolen bicycles is pretty dismal and should be much better. Also whether registering your bicycle is a helpful tool in removing your bike. I sense in Hawaii that HPD would much rather spend time apprehending harden criminals then recovering a stolen bicycle or the petty thief. In the end it all comes down to prevention.  What are we doing individually or collectively to deter bicycle thief here in Hawaii and what is in place to increase the recovery rate of stolen bicycles. Hopefully the committee through our discernment can come to some consensus on how to best improve our present situation.
