Better security needed at Centerville Train Station

by Gloria Hovde

Today my bicycle seat was stolen for the second time in two weeks at the Centerville train station. I bike to the train, from home, and always lock both wheels. After the first theft, I put a 1/4" steel combination cable lock through my new seat. Today they cut through the cable and stole the seat. People who bike are trying to save gas and preserve the environment. But there are no bike lockers or security at the Centerville train station.

I've looked through the OIC webcams to see if any of the video shows the seat being stolen but neither cam shows the bicycle area or parking lots. My question is this: why are there no bike lockers at the Centerville train station? And why aren't the webcams pointed toward areas that might help identify theft on the premises? A lot of people take Amtrak and ACE trains. It's time for something to be done about the lack of security at the Centerville station.
