The Decatur Police Department and Decatur Book Festival will be hosting a bicycle registration this Saturday, September 3, 2016 from 10am-2pm in the North McDonough turn-a-round next to the bike valet.
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 process takes just a few minutes. 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.
We will also register scooters that do not meet the size requirements for state tag registration. There is NO CHARGE to register your bicycle or scooter.
For additional information, please contact Lt. Jennifer Ross.
