"I would urge people to take more care and to do all they can to protect their possessions.
"Locked cycles are being ignored as there are plenty of unlocked cycles that are an easy target for the thieves."
He added: "Cycles in gardens are also vulnerable and should be securely chained or placed inside a locked shed or garage."
A number of cycle tagging events are being arranged for the Boston area.
Further details will be released as soon as dates are confirmed.
