Saskatoon Police are reminding residents to register their bikes to help police find the rightful owner in case of theft.
From Police: ” Recording your bike’s serial number and other identifying information could make the difference in getting your lost or stolen bike back.
In Saskatoon, Police have seen an increase in the number of bikes being stolen. Hundreds of recovered bicycles go to auction each year in Saskatoon because Police cannot identify owners. Bikes and bike parts are actually used as currency in the drug trade. For that reason, the SPS encourages you to record your bicycle information and enter it on our registry. This information is for police use only in the event your bike is lost or stolen. ”
