Bicycle Registration

Unfortunately, there are times when bicycles are lost by our children or stolen. Most often, stolen bicycles are used temporarily and then abandoned after a period of time. The Coal Valley Police Department receives many calls each year concerning abandoned bicycles or officers find bicycles while on patrol. The bicycles are taken into the custody of the Police Department for safe keeping and turned over to the Property Section for disposition. 

In most cases we do not have sufficient information on file to help us identify the owner of the lost or stolen bicycle. In order to help identify you as the bicycle owner, the Department encourages village residents to register their bicycles. 

Registration is quick, easy and FREE. It takes just a few minutes to complete the bicycle registration form to record your name, address and phone number along with the identifying characteristics of your bicycle. These include the make, model, color, style and serial number. It is recommended that you bring the bicycle in with the registration form so that we can take a photo of the bike and affix the registration sticker to the underside of the frame of your bicycle. This sticker has an independent identification number and the name of our Department. This is very useful in cases where bicycles are taken outside of the Village and are recovered by another police department. With the registration sticker attacked, any police department that finds your bicycle will know to contact our Department for ownership information. 

By registering all the bicycles in your family, the chance of recovering your lost or stolen bicycle increases significantly. You may print the bicycle registration form below and bring it to the Coal Valley Police Department to register your bicycle(s).

Please remember that if you should ever sell, give away or get rid of a registered bicycle, you should contact the Village of Coal Valley to let us know that you no longer are in possession of the bicycle.
