Franklin Police encourage bicycle owners to register their ride

Post Date:07/26/2017 3:00 PM


Dozens of unclaimed bikes that are recovered every year end up in police evidence with little hope of ever being reunited with their rightful owner. The Franklin Police Department’s free bicycle registration program makes it possible to change that.

With a quick visit to Franklin Police Headquarters, bicycle owners who want to register their bikes are provided with a uniquely-numbered registration sticker that can help officers reunite found bikes with their rightful owner. There is no need to bring your bike to the Police Station, but be sure to have your bike’s serial number, brand, model, and other identifying features with you when you come.

You can register your ride at the Records Section counter in the lobby of Franklin Police Headquarters, located at 900 Columbia Avenue, Monday through Friday between 8 am and 5 pm.
