The Pittsburg Police Department is announcing the release of a new bike registration program. Beginning Tuesday, October 1, 2019 members of the community can bring their bicycle to the Law Enforcement Center to have their bike’s information recorded into our system, including serial numbers and photos. The bike will be issued an official Pittsburg Police Department label with an identification number correlating to our records, in case the bike is ever lost or stolen. This program will allow our officers to identify stolen bikes and return them to their rightful owner quicker than before.
The decision to construct this program is a result of a public suggestion. After conducting online polls with our community members, we found that an overwhelming amount of citizens would like to see this program take place. There are similar programs in the surrounding areas that have seen successful outcomes and we can’t wait to see the positive impact it has on our community. This program will be available for all bike owners who would like to register with us during normal business hours, Monday-Friday 8am-5pm.
