Bikes are a hot commodity to thieves. In Greensboro, an average of 15 to 20 bikes are reported stolen every month. Many bikes are recovered by the police, yet nearly as many cannot be returned to their rightful owners because there is no positive way to matching the bicycle with the owner.
Take a few simple steps to help increase the likelihood that your stolen bike will be returned home:
- Record the serial number
- Engrave the bike with an identifying mark
- Register it with the Greensboro Police Department.
The City’s Code of Ordinances requires Greensboro bike owners register their bicycles. Bikes that belong to children under 16 must be registered by parents or legal guardian. The registration process is simple and free. Register online using the link above, download this registration form or request one be sent to you by calling the police department at 336-373-2463.
Mail your completed form to:
Greensboro Police Department
300 S. Swing Road
Greensboro, NC 27409
Or fax it to 336-373-7709
Once your registration form is received, the police will mail you a registration sticker to place on your bike. For more information about registering your bicycle, call 336-373-2463.
