Bicycle theft

You can report a lost or stolen bicycle and work with us to get your bicycle back.

What to do

If your bicycle is lost or stolen

We compare recovered bicycles to descriptions of bicycles reported lost or stolen. If we find a match, we contact the bicycle owner. We can also search our database  for bicycles that match your lost or stolen bicycle.

To get your bicycle back

  • Pick up your bicycle from the Police Property & Evidence Warehouse.
  • You'll need a valid state ID or driver's license and proof of ownership such as a:
    • Purchase receipt
    • Serial number, registration number or operation identification (OPID) number
    • Photo of the owner and the bike

To help us recover your bike

You have a better chance of getting your bike back if you register your bicycle.
