There’s been dozens of bikes stolen already this season, and many children will never see those bikes again. However, registering your child’s bicycle with the Lakewood Police Department says Police Chief Rob Lawson, will increase your chances of getting that bike back, should it be stolen.
Lawson says if patrolling officers have a description of the stolen bike and spot someone riding it, they can detain the person while they check the registration number. If the bike is registered, it will immediately notify the patrolling officer and the bike is returned to its rightful owner.
You can resgister a bike by contacting LPD’s Traffic & Safety division at 732-363-0200, extension 5380.
