Crime Prevention

Bicycle registration

Online registration is now available!

Register Now

 We strongly encourages all students to register their bicycles and keep them secured while on campus.  Bicycle registration is a free service provided by the police department.  Registering your bike provides officers with important identifying information in the event your bike is stolen, and also aids officers in returning your bike once it is recovered. There is no charge for this registration.
