Bike thefts in Greenville city limits up are 111 percent this year from 2018, according to the City of Greenville Police Department.
The total bikes stolen this year: 36.
A free and voluntary bike registration program recently started by the City of Greenville Police Department is intended to deter thieves and help law enforcement in returning recovered property.
What’s required for the bike registration program?
When an individual registers for the program this is what’s required:
- Owner’s name and contact information
- Bicycle make, model, serial number and digital photo of the bike
- Bike registration events are for all city of Greenville residents and anyone who purchased a bike within the city limits.
What’s included when you register your bike?
As part of the program, the owner’s name and contact information will be recorded, along with the bicycle make, model and serial number, and a digital photo of the bike.
A tamper-resistant sticker will be affixed to the bike and the registration number will be engraved on the bike.
The information of registered bikes will then be accessible to police in a searchable online database for officers.
