Officers and will be holding a free bike-marking event at Market Square, in Ely, between 4pm and 8pm on Thursday.
PCSO Daniel Stewart said: “By encouraging people to register their bikes on Immobilise we hope to stay ahead of the game and stop bike theft.
“Immobilise is simple to use and it only takes a couple of minutes to register your property.
