lost or stolen bicycle.
Why Register Your Bicycle?
In the last three years, the City of Kuna had 55 reports
of stolen bicycles. This may not seem like a large num-
ber, but it is more than double the amount of other are-
as in unincorporated Ada County (Star, Eagle, etc.). This
number doesn’t include any stolen/lost bikes that were-
n’t reported, so the actual number is likely much higher.
Bicycle The IS Preventable!
Thieves are less likely to steal a registered bike since its
owner can easily be idened. Registering your bike
with the Kuna City Police greatly increases the chance of
it being returned to you in the event that it is lost or
stolen and subsequently recovered. Bicycles that are not
registered and are recovered are sent to the Ada County
Sheri’s Oce Property and Evidence unit. Unclaimed
bikes are auconed o aer 90 days.
Why are Serial Numbers Important?
Serial numbers are a set of characters that uniquely
idenfy an object and can be used for traceability and
warranty purposes. Serial numbers are especially im-
portant when reporng stolen items, such as bicycles.
When bicycles are lost or stolen, the owner needs the
serial number to report the incident to the police. Most
people don’t keep this number on hand. When a bike is
registered, the registraon records are cross-referenced
by name as well as serial number and registraon num-
ber, which increases your chances of having your bike
returned, and makes it possible to le charges against
the person in possession of the bike.
Tips To Protect Your Bike:
If your bicycle doesn’t have a serial number, mark
where your serial number would be by engraving your
inials or a four-digit number of your choice
Secure your bike to a bike rack or other immovable
object using a strong, secure lock (U-shaped locks are
recommended rather than chains and cables)
Lock your bicycle through the frame and both wheels
if possible
Keep a record of your bike’s serial number and any
idenfying marks
Here’s What You Can Do!
Register your bike with the Kuna City Police. Your regis-
traon gives us the necessary informaon so that if
your bicycle is ever lost or stolen, we will have a record
of the bike’s serial number. Complete the registraon
form online or submit it to the Kuna City Police. Once
your form is received, you will get a bicycle registraon
scker by mail. Its tracking number is exclusive to you
and indicates your bike is registered with the Kuna City
Police. Apply the scker to your bicycle, making sure
not to cover up the serial number. You only need to
register once. If you sell your bike, the new owner
would need to register with their informaon.
Don’t Forget:
Although it isn’t law, wearing a helmet is always safer
than not doing so
Always lock up your bike, even if you’ll just be away
for a moment
Ride your bike safely! Know and follow the rules of
the road and be sure to keep a watchful eye on your
fellow riders
