Contact:  Romana Lopez – 207-7579   Date:  March 25, 2015   Release No:  15-031

The San Antonio Police Department’s Central Property Crimes Unit and SAFFE Unit are hosting a bicycle identification event. Citizens are encouraged to bring their bicycles to the San Antonio Police Department’s Central substation where their bicycles will be engraved with an identifying number of the citizen’s choice which will aid in the recovery of the bicycle if it is ever stolen. Bike owners may choose any owner’ applied number which will be engraved on the frame of the bicycle and also retained by the owner for future reference should their bicycle be stolen. Many bicycles are stolen and recovered by police however without any identifying numbers to reference, the bicycles are often not linked to the owner and therefore never returned. Many crimes could be solved with the aid of serial numbers or owner applied numbers being permanently etched on bicycles, this service is free to the public.
