Chief Lawson: Registering Your Bicycle With Police Increases Chance Of Getting It Back If Stolen

chief lawson s tlsThere’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.

  1. Ok chief .

    So what then happens to the suspect who stole the bike?

    This is the question that you are not answering?

    The answer is nothing.

    If the police are not going to enforce the law and bring these kids in so we get their real name and address then they will continue to steal. You will than have people take the law into their own hands to get their bikes back as there is no need to call the police who are not arresting or charging the kids for theft.

  2. “they can detain the person while they check” AND THEN LET THEM GO FREE AGAIN TO STEAL WITH NO CHARGES!!!!!
