Some of you may recall we used to have a police station in Lane Cove. Some of you may also recall we used to see more police officers in Lane Cove. Now, as is the way of the world, our police station has been centralised in Chatswood. In 2017, the North Shore Lower Area Command was amalgamated with Harbourside LAC as part of the NSW State Government’s move to amalgamate local area police commands across Sydney. Our local police station is now called the North Shore Police Command.

NSW Police Force Community Portal
Report Lost Property, Minor Crimes, Private Property Grafitti or Vandalism, or Fraud online via the NSW Police Force Community Portal. It is important to report a crime (no matter how small) as that gives accurate crime stats which helps with police numbers.
Use of the portal, which is linked to a MyServiceNSW account, also allows people who report non-urgent crime, to make and receive updates and to be contacted directly by police if further information is required.
To use the portal, people simply create a MyServiceNSW account on the Service NSW website, or from the home page of the NSW Police Force Community Portal, to successfully complete a report. The Community Portal does not replace the ability for people to report minor crimes in person or on the phone, but add another convenient online reporting tool.
From time to time NSW Police seek the public’s assistance in relation to specific incidents or investigations. Click here if you have information you think is related to a specific incident or investigation and follow the links.
If a bike is stolen from your property, as well as reporting it to the police you can list it with the National Bike Register. More information here
We recently had an example in Lane Cove where reporting a bike theft promptly resulted in the bike being returned to its own quickly. A bike was stolen in Lane Cove, it was reported to the police. In Bondi police stopped a cyclist who was well known to them for criminal activity after they notice the was riding an expensive bike. They checked the bike and found it was reported stolen.
You should also monitor online sale sites like gumtree, eBay and Facebook Marketplace and contact police if your bike is listed for sale.
