VicPD launches new bike registry

The registry aims to reunite owners with stolen bikes.

The Victoria Police Department has launched a new bike registry to help reunite found or seized bikes with their owners Wednesday (today).

The new registration system allows officers to help find the rightful owners of stolen bikes more quickly.

So far in 2015, the VicPD has received 427 reports of stolen bikes and have returned almost half.

“This new registration is [a] great tool for our community,” said VicPD Chief Constable Frank Elsner. “We’re committed to working on combatting bike theft in our community and this registry is a great step in that direction.”

Bike registration needs to be done in person and the form can be found at any event the VicPD is participating in, VicPD headquarters (850 Caledonia Ave.) or the Esquimalt Public Safety Building (500 Park Place.)
