Decatur Police will be registering bikes at Decatur Farmers MarketBike Registration photo provided by Decatur Police Lt. Jennifer Ross.
People who ride their bikes to the Decatur Farmers Market on Wednesday, Oct. 19, will have an opportunity to register them with the Decatur Police Department.
Decatur Police will be at the Farmers Market from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. The market is located at First Baptist Church Decatur, 308 Clairemont Avenue.
“Bicycles are a commonly stolen item and are not registered like vehicles,” Lt.Jennifer Ross said in a press release.”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.”
