The Society, in partnership with Thames Valley Police, have produced a set of educational resources using geographical data to give school pupils an insight into bike crime.
Suitable for Key Stage 3, GCSE and A Level geography, the resources give an overview of bike crime in the UK, explore who is vulnerable to bike theft and focus on statistical techniques on worked examples to further understand the data. A survey is also available for students to see what they already know about bike crime and how they can find out more.
In addition, we have also released a podcast with Thames Valley Police on national patterns and trends in bike crime, with a special focus on the city of Oxford and whether it could become the next Copenhagen.
We’re working on a further set of resources which will focus on studying bike crime using ArcGIS, and they will be available later in the year.
