Online Bicycle Registration Form available now!
In Greensboro, bikes are a hot commodity. They’re fun to ride, they’re a great form of exercise, and they let you cruise by gas stations with hardly a second glance. But the things you like about your bike are the very things that make your bike attractive to thieves.
In Greensboro, an average of 15 to 20 bikes are reported stolen every month. Many bikes are recovered by officers, yet nearly as many cannot be returned to their rightful owners because there is no positive means of matching the bicycle with the owner.
As a bike owner, you can take a few simple steps to help greatly increase the likelihood that a stolen bike can be returned home: record the serial number, engrave it with an identifying mark, and register it with the GPD.
The City’s Code of Ordinances requires that bike owners in Greensboro register their bicycles. Bikes that belong to children under 16 must be registered by the child’s parents or legal guardian. The registration process is simple and free. You can also request a registration form by calling the GPD at 336-373-2463.
Mail your completed form to:
Greensboro Police Department
2602 S. Elm-Eugene St.
Greensboro, NC 27406
Or fax it to 336-433-7319.
Once your registration form is received, the GPD will mail a registration sticker to you to place on your bike. For more information about registering your bicycle, call 336-373-2463.
