Register Your Bike with Emmitsburg Community Deputies

Protect Your Bike

  • Register your bicycle with the police.
  • Use a good-quality locking device such as a hardened steel "U" shaped lock, or a hardened steel chain and padlock.
  • Lock your bicycle and both wheels to an immovable object which cannot be easily cut or broken.
Weak, inexpensive locks will not deter a proficient thief. It is pointless to save money by using a cheaply made lock, only to lose an expensive bicycle. 

To prevent loss, accessories such as lights and bags, etc... should be detached and taken with you when the bicycle is left unattended.

Identification of your bicycle

Manufacturers mark most bicycles with a serial number. If yours does not have a serial number, engrave an identifying number on the frame. You may wish to put the same number on the wheels and other components.

Register your bicycle

Registering your bicycle will greatly assist in its recovery if stolen.
