Register bikes in Arlington

Having information on file will help police return stolen bicycles more easily.


Stolen bicycles, even if recovered by police, are generally difficult to return to the rightful owners. Every year approximately 25 bicycles are found or turned in to the Arlington Police Department, but officers have no way of identifying the owners so the bikes go unclaimed.

To help resolve this issue, members of the police department’s volunteer program are now registering bicycles for Arlington residents.

According to volunteer coordinator Don Williams, bicycle owners can register their bikes at police headquarters any weekday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Owners must present the bicycle serial number in order to receive a registration sticker, which should be attached to the seat post on the bicycle frame.

Police volunteers will also be registering bicycles at some special events this spring and summer as well. The first of these is the McClinchy Bike Ride, organized by the B.I.K.E.S. Club of Snohomish County, which takes place on Saturday, May 15, at Haller Middle School, 600 E. 1st St.

“We urge everyone to register their bikes,” said Williams. “Feel free to stop by the police department if you have any questions.”
