The Bordentown Township Police Department’s Bicycle License Registration Program was designed to aid in the recovery of lost or stolen bicycles.
Registering is quick and easy and the licenses have no expiration date. You will be asked to complete a registration form which requires your name, address, phone number, bicycle brand, bicycle model, color and serial number. You may complete the form in advance by clicking here or can pick one up in person at our police department.
In addition to registering your bicycle, it's smart to keep track of your own bicycle information to assist in theft recovery. Write down your serial number. The serial number is usually located on the bottom of the frame, underneath the bottom bracket. The serial number is the most important information to have, as it is unique to your bicycle. Aftermarket parts or stickers may be helpful, but the serial number is by far the most important.
Each year, 1,500,000 bicycles are stolen nationwide and about half of them are recovered, but less than 2% are returned because there’s no way to link a bike to its owner. When your bicycle is labeled and registered in the Bordentown Township Police Department database, it can be easily identified by police and returned to its rightful owner. Any other questions regarding bicycle licenses can be directed to Lt. Crowell at 609-298-4300, ext. 2134.
