Bicycles can be returned to their owner easily with identification on them such as a bicycle license.
City of Stevens Point bicycle licenses are only $6 and are non-expiring.
Licenses can be obtained from the Stevens Point Police Department during normal Records Bureau hours.
The Police Department recovers many bicycles each year, and many go unclaimed. Often when bicycles are stolen, the thieves will abandon the bike when they are done with it. We donate the unclaimed bicycles to the Shifting Gears Community Bicycle Shop and Wisconsin Nicaragua Partners.
One of the most important things to do to prevent your bicycle from being stolen is to lock your bike, even if you are only going to be away from it for a short period of time.
When you lock your bicycle, the lock should be placed around the frame of the bike and then to the rack. The bike rack should be in a well lit area to help deter opportunity to a potential thief.
