When a bicycle is registered with the SF College Police Department, the registration number is stored in a database with Campus Police, along with the owner’s name and contact information so that he or she can be easily notified, if the bicycle is recovered. Some benefits to registering your bicycle:
- A registered bike may contribute to a higher rate of conviction for those apprehended with it in their possession.
- A registered bike makes it easier for law enforcement officials to return it to the rightful owner if it is lost or stolen and increases your chances for recovery of your bicycle if it is stolen.
- Law enforcement agencies often have a difficult time determining if a recovered item of value was stolen because owners have not recorded the serial numbers.
- A bicycle with a registered serial number, if found, may aid officers in establishing the bike was stolen even though it had not yet been reported.
