Bicycle Registry

Bicycle Registry
Register your bicycle with the Kerman Police Department.  It’s fast, it’s easy and it’s FREE.
Registering your bicycle will help us get your lost/stolen bicycle back to you when it’s found. When you fill out the simple form, we will save the information about your bicycle and your contact information to our local database.  If we come across your bicycle, we will contact you.

Bicycle theft happens far too often, and most bicycles are not returned to their owners when they are found because the owner didn’t have the necessary information when reporting the bike lost or stolen.

KPD often recovers/locates bikes, but we are unable to return them because we have no way of knowing who the bike belongs to. Help us help you by registering your bike today.
You can do this by contacting any Kerman PD officer, stopping by the Kerman Police Dept. or at your local school.

For further information please call (559) 846-6633.
