Decatur Police to register bicycles at Touch a Truck and Earth Day Festival
Decatur Police will be registering bicycles at two upcoming events.
Police will register bikes and scooters for no charge at the annual Touch a Truck event on Saturday Mar. 26 in the Calloway Parking Lot at 120 West Trinity Pl. from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m.
There will also be a bike registration at the Earth Day Festival at the Wylde Center at 435 Oakview Rd. on Sunday, Apr. 24 from 12:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m.
A Decatur Police press release says, “Bicycles are a commonly stolen item and are not registered like vehicles. Bicycle registration includes bringing your bicycle, providing owner contact information, having the manufacturer and serial number documented and having a numbered decal applied to and a photo taken of your bicycle.”
The press release explains that the process is quick and that “Registering your bicycle allows officers to look up recovered bicycles and contact the owner and allows for us to quickly look up the needed information about your bicycle if it were to be stolen. The information is kept in a secured database only accessible by police department staff.”
