Like in any town, Somerville has it's share of bicycle theft. The thieves are generally opportunistic, usually walking along, seeing an unlocked or unsecured bike, and riding off on it. We confiscate many bicycles that are found abandoned, and they are stored by the police until they can legally be auctioned off once or twice a year. It is for this reason that we ask you to please REGISTER YOUR BICYCLE with us. The more detail you can provide us the better, even if you have to make notes on the bottom of the registration form. Please also list any special markings or owner applied identification numbers. Maybe we can return your bicycle to you!
If you would like to register your bicycle in Somerville, please use the registration form . Print it out, fill it out, and mail it to us at the address indicated on the form. This form requires Adobe Acrobat Reader..
THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!
